    The Waboba Block

    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.

    If you’re outside the Chinese firewall (or you can tunnel your way out), you can catch a video of these fearless little fellas carving through the curlers on YouTube here.

    2 Years ago my knowledge of the Asian cuisine was quite much the stuff I could find in Sweden: Namely Sushi, Tandoori, and strange deep fried sweet and sour buffets that we have come to call Chinese food.

    I didn’t even know there was such a thing as Korean food.

    The place is popular – despite taking up an entire floor on its own the restaurant can’t cater for all its guests and we ended up waiting outside for about 15min. Well inside we got to share one of the private rooms that the restaurant hosts – which did not mind us as much as it seemed to mind the couple who got to share their romantic dinner with a random Swede ordering way to much food in his “obscene” Chinese, a constantly photographing Sam and a Stella who tried her best to avoid creating lan fei.
