In this video a guy gets carried up on a updraft while kite surfing. He's in the air for about thirty eight seconds or some before coming back down. He moves in over land up to about two hundred feet or so before coming back down and crashing into the dirt.
Here is a video of a guy 'trainsurfing' which is to say he jumps on the back of a bullet train and holds on for dear life until the next train stop. It looks like he attaches some kind of suction device to the back window of the train which has a cable attached to it that he holds onto. According to the caption for the video these bullet trains can reach up to 300 km/h or 186 miles an hour. There are quite a few train surfing videos on YouTube. Apparently the guy in the video died of leukemia in 2006. Hint: Don't try this at home.
This big wave surfing video was shot at Teahupoo, Tahiti and it features some pretty big waves very close to shore. The video starts out with some pretty big waves with no one surfing them. Watch the water suck up and under the very first wave they show -- it's pretty amazing. The waves seem to be coming right down a corridor and not effecting the camera boat which seems to be stationed right next to where they break. Additionally, the break has a spray effect where the water shoots down the wave tunnel in a huge whiteout spray. The guys have to be towed into the wave on jet skis as well and if you know anything about surfing that means BIG waves. They show a number of guys catching waves, a wipeout, and some whiteouts before panning towards shore where you can see how close to the islands they are. So the real question is, are surfers really ninjas (note the black suits and death defying feats)?
If you've never seen video of a truely big wave this is one to watch. These big waves are way out in the middle of the ocean and in order for surfers to ride them they have to have jet ski's tow them into the wave. The video starts out with a jet ski towing this guy in and you can't really see the size and scope of the wave until the video gets zoomed out a little big. This is a GIANT wave. The guy surfs down the from and through a tunnel which whites out on him. He's still surfing in front of the wave though as the wave collapses behind him in a giant wash of spray. Near the end of the video he is lost to the view of the camera.
