I'm not saying its actually haunted, just some dipshits believe it is.

Apparently, it's somewhere in Ireland.

This is from Scotland...

They are talking bollocks, look at the top of the picture, there is blue sky, no way that is Scotland.

Unlikely as it may seem, it is Scotland, the Fairy Pools on Skye.

No, there's several vids on youtube of madmen surfing it. Teahupo'o I think, unless i'm mistaken:
Teahupo'o's legendary reputation for wave riding is partly due to its unique form. An extremely shallow coral reef, which ranges up to 20 inches beneath the waters surface, is responsible for a very hollow-breaking wave. The wave's unique shape, with an effect of almost breaking below sea level, is due to the specific shape of the reef beneath the wave. Its semi circular nature, which drops down sharply creates a 'below water' effect and the extreme angles in descent create an instant instability to the wave. A steep wall of reef causes the entire mass to fold onto a scalloped semi circle breaking arc. The wave bends and races along into a dry reef closeout and the lip of the wave is often as thick as it is tall.

Holy crap. :uhoh:

The whole thing's worth viewing but the couple of minutes from 2-4 are particularly hairy, and the final shot just looks like a man drowning.
I guess what made me think it was shopped was the semi circular nature of it and the fact that all those people on surfboards are bobbing around on flat water whilst a 60 ft wave rages about 10 yds away????

Masonry not water - I see it now.

Indeed but it was only the bit above the gravel where it looked like the water was vertical that allowed me to see it!!

That's the unique nature of Teahupo'o. All of the water has to come back out through the same bowl as the waves come in, which creates a tsunami-like wall that's completely flat behind.

Costal houses in the US (particularly the gulf coast) that are exposed to potential flooding are frequently built on piles that are extended up to around 15 ft off the ground. The ground floor is either left open or partially closed in for a garage or storage.

I think some of the people in Britain who ok housing to be built on flood plains should be sent there to see how it should be done, it's ridiculous how many people have their homes ruined.

I know what you mean. Even moderately decent looking female cops / soldiers give me the horn. One can assume they know how to handle a 'gun'. :blush:
