It Looks Like A Normal Boardwalk But When The Waves Come Crashing In Something Strange Occurs!

In Zadar, Croatia, you can be serenaded by the water as you stroll down the boardwalk. There is an inventive architectural creation which allows notes to be played by the wind of the waves through a tube like structure.

Pipes underlie a set of large marble steps, making the sea organ expansive and majestic. Not quite melodic, the sound is still awe inspiring with its mystical feel and impressive wonder. It is almost as if the Adriatic sea is singing out loud, giving it a playful personality and intriguing communication.

Of course the skill should be credited not only to the artistic water, but to the architect who made the instrument, Nikola Bašić. He built the device as an attempt to beautify the city coast from its rebuild after the Second World War.

The organ provides a break in the monotonous concrete wall that was the sea front repair after devastation. It was opened on April 15, 2005 and is a destination for both tourists and locals to enjoy.

The polyethylene pipes and resonating cavity create a random, yet harmonious, tune. Not the only sea organ to be made, in 2006 it was awarded the European Prize for Urban Public Space, which is a biennial award started in 2000 to recognize public space projects.

Competitors include the Wave Organ in San Francisco, California, and the Blackpool High Tide Organ in Blackpool, United Kingdom.

This Guy Starts Digging A Hole In The Sand. But When The First Wave Hits Everyone’s Jaw Drops!

Surfing is one of the most fun hobbies for those of us lucky enough to live near the water and beach. There is nothing like the smell of the water, the heat of the sun and the cool water beneath you as you paddle out on your surfboard searching for that next big wave. When you finally catch one the exhilaration and adrenaline flows through your body as you effortlessly make your way to shore riding the wave to the very end.

But, If you surf you know that there is a lot of downtime, as you wait for the next perfect waves to show up.  So what is a bored surfer supposed to do while they wait for the next big swell? First, you could do nothing and just enjoy the relaxing beach and ocean waves.  Or you could create your own waves, by digging a whole and building a makeshift current pool linked into the Waimea River.  The Waimea River is one of the longest rivers in Hawaii.

The surfers begin to dig deep into the sand, than something amazing goes down. The trench transforms into a giant hole, and then the water pours in creating an epic wave pool. It’s truly the surfing gift that keeps giving. I have never seen anything like this! Enjoy! 🙂
