TGIF: Monster Wave in Super-slow Motion

High-definition cameras shooting 600 frames reveal the inner dynamics of Monster Waves in the new BBC series South Pacific: Oceans of Islands premiering May 10 on BBC Two. The trailer above shows the first images of underwater spiralling vortices created by the wave’s action, off the coast of Pohnpei in the Caroline Islands, part of the Federated State of Micronesia.

  1. That is a great video! I wish that media in the US was more like BBC. They do a lot of interesting thing. I have never gone surfing, but maybe one day!

  2. That was amazing. The last bit gave me chills. I second chia-yi’s comment that we need more programming like this stateside.
