Like liquid avalanche, I imagine this a treat for surfing beginners: not as life-threatening as the ones from Asgard, but massive enough to encourage mortal terror. I have seen this sea at its calmest and facing it now with waves taller than me is sensational. Just the sound of it is incredible! (I have a video but I can’t seem to upload it.)
I wish I can say I swam the colossal tide but I understand swimming and standing at waist-deep while getting repeatedly hammered on all fronts are two different things. At one point, a really fat wave swallowed me entirely I had to get out of the water to well, not die. Did I mention I tackled this angry sea alone? Totally unsafe but incredibly exciting.
The strong undercurrent that comes one-two with the waves made my legs give time to time, too. Uncool. My left shin remains peppered with bruises from the last muay thai sparring and it hurts like a motherfucker every time it collides against the ocean floor.
Still, all tremendous fun, watching the fluid tip of the Alps charge at you. Okay, given, it is quite possibly trying to kill me as well, but I lived so no hard feelings.
