I wonder how much time they spend to create such cool waves?

haha wow that must have been so fun..... and I don't think I need to remind u guys how strong water current is.... these dudes just divided the beach in half I wonder if the power of the current is just going to keep making it bigger and bigger....

#3 The beach hasn't been destroyed. It's merely changed shape.

Well that water source must be on higher level than sea. But where they found that quantity and so close to sea?

This is great!

I think it's done with use of the tide (at the Waimea River).

They dig a trench during low tide, from a still water part the size of a lake that was flooded during high tide, down to the sea.

So the next high tide will probably fix the beach, fill up a new lake, and they can do it again.

Here is the video at regular speed:

Use google maps to show a nice topview of the Waimea River:

I am completely puzzled on this one. Is that a tidal pool that they were digging towards or a lake? Hope some one can tell us who was actually part of it. It looked like a good time though.
