The Waboba Block

I can’t resist it. I’ve been going through the photos from the O’Neill Surfing Hainan Open and let’s just say that this particular image stands out.

I suppose it’s hardly surprising that the country that brought you Kung Fu should also be the master of interesting stances when it comes to Waboba. These guys were throwing the ball very hard, so it’s probably not surprising that they should want to look out for their squishy bits.

There’s a full video of them in action here.
