Making Waves

While looking for an image for the previous post, I found these videos of a lake or lagoon being opened up after intense rain so that the water flows out to sea—creating, within minutes, powerful rivers of water that can be surfed for what seems like the whole afternoon.

The first one, above, in which the channel is excavated by hand, is probably more interesting for its literally hands-on, DIY hydrology, but the second video’s resulting torrent of black rolling water, visible at the 3:22 mark—

—is incredible. Just some eye candy for a Thursday afternoon.
