In a solid 8+ swell, with the right conditions, you are more likely to ride all the way down the point to or even past Impossibles, even past the Point, if you pick up one of the bigger "sidewinders" that wrap around the point more to the left. The meat of the wave is further down and somehow this prevents it closing out when it hits Impossibles. However, it also commits you to pulling into one of the most awesome barrels of your life. As Impossibles approaches, locals or seasoned visitors will raise both arms in the air and point down the point. It's a signal to whoever is interested that the person is going for broke all the way down. Then it's time to build up speed by drawing speed lines near the top of the feathering wall. As you begin to reach critical mass, short of taking off into the air, you drop into the bowl and hang in for an eternity. Deep in the pit, the sunlight recedes until it becomes what seems a speck in front of you, like the exit to a round blue cave where daylight is a distant glare. Oh no, this is it, too deep! But hey, suddenly the entrance draws back towards you. It hovers once or twice, flirting with you, before peeling back over your head. You're in the sunlight. It's good to be alive. Some dudes at Tubes are staring. You don't care. You're shaking with sheer ecstasy. You kick out, even though you could have carried on. What's the point in surfing through the Point? You've just had the wave of your life. Time to get out, and walk all the way back up to Supers along the beach, about a 300-metre walk.
