    Man-o-Man, talk about getting "Air". Did I see that correctly though??? Was he still holding on for a extended time?

    When I see videos like this I have to think staged and fake. There is no story to go along with the video, nor any news articles. No context to it. No source for the video...etc...

    It's always hard to tell whether it's real or not.... but if anyone knows, what happened to the surfer, if it's real...... AND, what the ****, why were they doing this near a glide path of an airport.... DUUUUUhuuuuuuuu... LOL

    I have to think fake. I looked at some of the other videos posted there and they had been 'enhanced' in one way or another so....

    Fake!

    Think about it for a few moments. An aircraft on approach is doing about 130 kts on short final there. Snatching the guy from next to zero airspeed up to 737 approach speed would exert such G force he sure couldn't hang onto it at the moment of contact. Further, maintaining a grip through to touchdown would be a superhuman feat .... not that he wouldn't be full of adrenaline.

    Next, what happens to this surfer dude at touchdown? Its not as if he's wearing a kevlar jock strap, he's in a bathing suit ... LOL. He'd have been ripped to shreds.... have you ever seen what's happened to a big big motorcycle rider who looses it in gravel while wearing cut-offs?

    Trust me, if this were real, it would have made the general public news, and received extensive coverage in aviation publications.

    There is none. As the say in legal terms "Show me the body." Tee hee ....

    Your Honor, I rest my case
