18/03/2016 (Great Wave of Kanagawa)
The big one
I wonder, are the great times like the Sixties or the twenties the start of a great time or the end or any of that? How can we recognize the importance of an era when one is in their midst. Doesn’t matter the small visible movements? or are there any bigger, fundamental waves which we can see only from a great distance? Anyway, it is important to be prepared when the next big one arrives. Those who can give us some advices are the professionals, the big wave surfer. What they teach us is this: The size of your talent needed to successfully surf these waves vary by the size of the wave as well as the technic the artist uses to reach the wave. A larger, longer experienc allows an artist to paddle fast enough to catch the wave and has the advantage of being more stable. But pay attention, a breaking wave can push artists down below the surface. Once they stop spinning around, they have to quickly regain their equilibrium and figure out which way is up. One of the greatest dangers is the risk of being held underground. Surviving a triple hold-down is extremely difficult and artists must be prepared to cope with these situations.
