glatt Thursday Jun 3 11:23 AM
Dolphins are smart.
lumberjim Thursday Jun 3 11:54 AM

Doesn't it seem like the wave and the dozen or so dolphins are about to crash on top of those surfers?

Where was this picture taken? I've heard stories about surfing w/ dolphins from Hawaii and California, but the water looks a little clear to be SoCal. But the wetsuits do indicate the colder Pacific rather than the Keys and the like. Or maybe those are just rash guards, can't tell.
Undertoad Thursday Jun 3 02:17 PM
It was sent to me with no additional information! So I really don't know.
axlrosen Thursday Jun 3 02:29 PM
I wonder how far in the dolphins get? I'm surprised they're not in danger of whacking against the bottom or getting beached.

I guess if I could talk to dolphins, that would be pretty cool.
This picture also reminded me of the Simpson's episode where the Dolphins took over Springfield. That was pretty funny.

I got that picture once in an email too, it seems to have been out there for awhile.

This happens a lot over here in Manly (Oz). I'm forever watching dolphins frolic around in the surf. It's the most wonderful thing to see. This time of year you can see them quite clearly playing with the surfers, the water is just so clean and clear just like looking through glass. It's just the best feeling watching them play.

Yeah, this happens quite often in Australia, it's still great any time you experience it though! There is of course the split second where you think to yourself "Sweet! A dolphin - or maybe its a shark...nope, definitely dolphin"

That's a bit much for me Leah, I don't like sharks too much. One has to respect them for being the killing machines they are but swimming with them? No thanx, I'll leave that up to the reality show contestants.

I recently read an article about exotic animal vacations - one vacation you can go on is a shark cruise. They take you out in a boat, lower you into the water in a cage, and you can see all of the Great White Sharks you want. It was the 5/15/04 issue of American Way Magazine on American Airlines.

Sharks are so beautiful! they really dont pose as much threat as one would imagine. Sure, they are dangerous, but so are a lot of animals. I have been in the surf with them many times, in fact, the beach on my street has a breeding ground just 100 metres of the breakers. You can glide over on your board and look down and see them all swimming about. Ive never heard of any shark attacks on our beach though.

It's from MSNBC's Image of The Week, from before they switch over to a mean old Flash interface that won't let you save 'em to your hard drive.
Undertoad Friday Jun 4 07:00 PM
Thanks guy. (I do a screen capture to get the MSNBC pics these days, when I remember to look there)

Welcome to the Cellar. AVAST! Prepare to be greeted!
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Jun 9 07:41 PM
Do they surf in Norway, Torm?
ladysycamore Wednesday Jun 9 08:14 PM
I would love to swim with the dolphins. Guess that would fall under things I haven't done yet (or whatever that thread was called... )
Pi Thursday Jun 10 05:42 AM
You should watch the film "Le Grand Bleu" ("The big blue"???) by Luc Besson with Jean Reno and Jean-Marc Barr. Swimming with dolphins...
wolf Thursday Jun 10 12:45 PM
That's the free-diving movie, right?

Sorry, couldn't help it.

speaking of Dolphins, Garo Upremian (K) is in my showroom right now. says he's an Eagles fan.
Undertoad Thursday Jun 10 02:36 PM
Wasn't he on the San Jose Sharks?
lumberjim Thursday Jun 10 02:39 PM

Guess Friday Jun 25 11:05 AM
anybody seen the Simpsons Halloween episode where the dolphins take over Springfield?
xoxoxoBruce Sunday Apr 6 02:24 AM
Since I have no idea where the real fucking thread is and even Google can't find it, I'll park this here.
