I've been surfing all my life so this looks fun to me, like hop-skipping in the park. Have you ever been hit by a fire hose? It'll knock you down, now imagine the whole ocean coming after you! This painting makes it look easy but it takes a lifetime of skill and intense concentration to just catch big waves without getting hurt,(we call it "getting hammerd"). Water is not the culprit, its the pure raw energy that slams all that water against the shallow reef. See the lighter green area just to his left, and below his onlooking buddy sitting on the "shoulder" watching him "dropping in"? He's not just watching, he's "hooting' him in, helping him commit dropping into the impact zone. With the old man against the see scenario you need all the help you can get. And, oh that area of lighter green is where the wave slams up against an underwater out crop so fast and hard that the water can't get out of its own way fast enough as it rushes up from the bottom, causing it to mutate into double sometimes triple wave crests breaking on each other. So, surfing lesson 101, don't take it lightly, do something wrong you always get punished..every time. And it can kill you.
