Mike Parsons (born March 3, 1965) is a surfer sponsored by the Billabong company who famously successfully surfed a 66-foot wave at Cortez Bank, CA in 2001, for which he was awarded $66,000, the highest prize ever awarded in the history of professional surfing. This money was awarded by the Billabong XXL competition which has run since 2001 paying tribute to the biggest waves ridden each year. This feat at Cortez Bank was popularised by the film Billabong Odyssey. Parsons is famous for a video clip of him riding a wave about 65 tall at Jaws, shot from a helicopter, that many believed was the biggest wave ever surfed. Parsons recently broke his record on January 5, 2008, at Cortez Bank, when he was photographed surfing a wave that the Billabong XXL judged to be 70+ feet, which should put him in the Guinness Book of World Records, officially, for biggest wave ever surfed. Unofficially the biggest wave ever surfed remains Ken Bradshaw's wave at Log Cabins, Oahu on January 28, 1998, at over 80 feet.

"Bra Boys" is a film about the cultural evolution of the inner-Sydney beachside suburb of Maroubra and the social struggle of its youth -- the tattooed and much maligned surf community known as the Bra Boys. Central to the story is the true-life struggle of the Abberton brothers -- Sunny, Koby, Jai and Dakota ... one charged with murdering a Sydney standover man, another pursuing a professional surf career but charged as an accessory in his brother's legal fight, another trying to hold the family together and a young brother whose inheritance is his siblings' notoriety. The story is narrated by Academy Award-winning Australian actor Russell Crowe, and is told through the eyes of members of the Bra Boys. In Theatres: Apr 11th, 2008. Rating: R.

Plane Hits Truck, Guatemala, 1976
Photograph by Robert W. Madden
"Buffeted by crosswinds, a rescue plane crashes into a truck, while trying to land on a mountain highway near Sanarate. Miraculously no one suffered serious injury."
From "Earthquake in Guatemala," June 1976, National Geographic magazine

This photo got very famous around the web under the name "Holy Cow!", but actually that is not a cow, that's a wallaby (a small kind of kangaroo), The snake is an Olive Python and the photo was taken in Western Australia.
Photo number 5:
The woman uploaded this photo to the web talked about it on March 2008:
"I was visiting my brother in Courtenay, BC. We went for a hike at Seal Bay Park. This picture was taken at the end of the walk...we were inspecting some really cool butter mushrooms on a mossy log. My mom decided to take a picture, but she's not very good at it, so it came out totally off center. the wolf wasn't even noticed until after getting home, and my mom had put the pictures on the computer. She didn't even notice at first, but my other brother was like "what the hell is that??!!"."
Photo number 4:
At first glance you might mistake a bell-mouth spillway for a watery vortex into another dimension. What can only be described as a giant hole in the water is actually a method for controlling the release of flows from a dam or levee into a downstream area. These spillways help prevent floods from destroying the dam. Located in northern California, the Monticello Dam's is the largest morning glory spillway all over the world.
Photo number 3:
Photographer Thomas P. Peschak tell about his photo:
"I wanted to shot a photograph that would tell the story of our research efforts to track white sharks using kayaks. When the first shark of the day came across our sea kayak it dove to the seabed and inspected it from below. I quickly trained my camera on the dark shadow which slowly transformed from diffuse shape into the sleek outline of a large great white. When the shark's dorsal fin broke the surface I pressed the shutter and the rest was history."
Photo number 2:
The once-in-a-lifetime photograph of 17 dolphins muscling in on the humans during a professional surfing competition was taken by John Pauling, a South African surfing photographer ... he's been surfing since 1965, and has worked as a professional photographer since 1973 (all his adult career).
Photo number 1:
Photographer Bence Máté tell about this photo:
"I was photographing hummingbirds when I heard the sharp, alarming noise of the birds reacting to the presence of a predator. Sixty feet away from me this green-crowned brilliant was fearlessly attacking a viper. This encounter was one of the most interesting ones I had ever seen, and I quickly set up two flashes to increase the light and shutter speed, using one flash fired from the background and another from the camera"
