I Know How Good You Are
Frosty: I know how good you are. I've seen you out there. You surf circles around those other kids. Those are normal waves. Surfing normal waves is about how you perform when everything goes right. Big wave surfing it's a different ball game. It's about how you perform when everything goes wrong. One bump off the face of that wave and you're hitting the water like concrete at 50 miles per hour. Then you got a thousand tons of water coming down on top of you. It's knocking you senseless, ripping you apart and pushing you down to a place that's so deep and so dark that you don't want to be there.
Jay: So why do it?
Frosty: Get out of here. I got work to do.
Jay: Train me then. Train me to ride it.
Frosty: Did you hear what I said?
