Default Through the Wormhole: In the Green Room

This may not exactly match all of Cal's criteria for this challenge but here goes.

Surfing enthusiasts have a term for riding through the tube formed by the wave they are riding. It is called "In the Green Room". The color refers to the green color of the water that encircles the surfer while riding through the tube formed by the wave. Some compare the experience to a Zen like state as they navigate through the Green Room.

Professional surfing photographers stationed in the water with the right waterproof equipment take some wonderful shots of the view inside the Green Room and looking out of the Green Room. Here I'm on land watching a surfer enjoy the ride in his "Wormhole".

I like this, the surfers perspective looking out would a framed view of the wave in front.

Very cool! We don't see curl like that at the beaches I seem to frequent, I've always thought it would be amazing to experience something like that (unlikely since I never learned how to surf!).
