according to google: Stuff is any collection of materials, substances or any such things. In conversation, "stuff" is often used in place of the correct noun if the meaning is obvious from the context: "You got the stuff?" For example "white stuff" may mean heroin, cocaine, semen, middle of an Oreo, etc. Together with "shit," it is frequently employed as a euphemism when the speaker may not want to explicitly specify what they mean (for example, when discussing illicit substances).

So........what do you keep in you garage / loft?

Although on a more serious note..... IMO it is when you inplant the nose of the boat into the wave infront of you (and make a big splash) instead of riding over the top of it...for a lovely video clip of this see:

South West Ribsters do RIBEX 2006

When the bow digs in catching on a wave stalling the boat and sometimes filling it with water, can cause injury to the crew.

A few good videos on boatmads excellent multimedia site:

Cowes Stuff

In my experience it’s a brain/throttle interface problem, causing a waterfall to land on your head from about 15 feet, resulting in the boat turning into a motorised paddling pool.

Usually followed by the words “is the engine still running?”

I think ADS's links are excellent examples of a stuff... ...i'm not sure if the example that roy filmed and Gray linked to is really a stuff. I think it requires green water to pour over over the front of the bow rather than just spray to come over your head. The boat doesn't seem to slow down too much "on impact" with the wave - which also suggests it wasn't quite a full stuff.

ON THE VARY RARE OCCASIONS i'VE DONE IT it has proved to be a chilling experience. You know when you've done it properly cos it's kinda in sllloooowww moshun.

essentially it's when you go through the wave and not over it and yet it can be painful and possibly remove you from your driving position

Agreed, but stuff likes ADS linked to aren't so likely for those here on ribnet, i feel. It isn't a pleasant experience and should be avioded when at all possible!
