"That's nothing. I've seen bigger waves behind my Mastercraft on Lake Piru."
steve grier says:
"Shane Dorian and his homies, they all stand tall. What ever happend to Laird Hamilton? I thought this was his backyard, waves like this were something he trained so hard for. I can remember back in 1969, I was on a plane returning from Japan, stopped over in Honolulu, herd the north shore was breaking with waves over 25ft. I drove out there and was able to see Gregg Noll ride the biggest wave I have ever seen someone ride. These guys and ladies get better and better each year, the waves they ride are to awesome. Good on them."
Shaun White's trophy room may be packed with gold medals from little competitions like the X Games and Olympics, but when it comes to skating, the action sports star can still be humbled out on the street, where most real scores are settled. Take his latest trip to Venice, Calif., where he was tasked with trying to keep up with 8-year-old skater Asher Bradshaw in the park. As the video below shows, that was easier said than done.
Bradshaw picked his favorite line and flew ahead, while White struggled to keep up with his follow-cam. In the end, he decided to cut his losses and catch Asher on the rebound, as the little guy took to the air on the opposite side.
White couldn't help but be amused, taking it all in stride. He said with confidence afterward, "Asher's going pro."
