    seeing waves with eyes closed

    does this happen to anybody else? after long sessions - esp. dp sessions - when i close my eyes later i see waves, walls of approaching water just about to break. i'm wondering if staring at swells into the rising sun burns the image onto my retina or something. it's crazy. when i go to bed hours later i'm still seeing it. does this happen to anybody else? i've noticed this for a long time but i've never heard anybody mention it.

    yea man.... happens to me all the time.... i dont think it has anything to do with a sun burned image in you retina...than again i'm no eye specialist. But even on days where it wasn't sunny... I still had that image in my head. If your out there for an extended period of time, like myself, and your facing the oncoming sets and duckdiving, you can def expect to see that image later. It's a little tripped out, but usually, ill be soo out of it, that I knock out before that wave can even break.

    A few years ago I spent the winter down in CR, living the dream. Almost every night as I started fading off, I'd see walled up waves coming at me... not so much in a threatening way. I always thought it was cool to see big sets coming as I faded to sleep. Hoped it would lead to dreams of surfing the same set waves.
