This is the Hawaiian sport known as papa holua. http://www.hawaiibc.com/holua.htm

Probably the other roadblock.

Kay so, where does anyone think this is? (I'm gonna venture to say not Japan)





And I think this is RachelR


I spent 4 years at MCBH Kaneohe, and at first glance, it reminds me of the soil from the base, so I' d have to say Hawaii.  I swear I've been right where they are...

Now that i have seen the new preview which shows B/R upset this definitly leads me to believe they are trying to make us think its them who forgets something major.Since Drenchel has been the frontrunner who son most of the legs and who most people predicted to win makes it more of shocker that they are the ones that come in to the finale and end up making the mistake leading B/R to win the race? I Would rather see B/R win race straight out by doing the tasks faster and before everyone else but if Boring Rachel ends up making mistake and they win im all for it.

Watching that promo makes me think brendon and Rachel get turned back.

If your talking about the new promo that paridy posted, then I think your wrong. CBS always makes big deals of it, from Survivor to TAR. They exaggerate everything, from Mooper with a hurt knee, well it didn't matter, they got 1st. They showed Vanessa falling, didn't affect much. So I doubt Rachel saying she hates Brendon is because they got turned back.

From the pictures shown of the finish line, it is less than 20 miles from the base.

It appears to me that the jet ski taskis a "surf rescue." They use the jet skis to pull surfers that have wiped out to safety......again......probably on the North Shore, where all the well known surfing beaches are. Dec is the start of the big winter wave season. There are golf courses all over the place, btw.

The finish line is across Kaneohe Bay from the Marine Base.

Guys, I don't think any of your conclusions of the finish line clip matter. It has to be a recreated scene. If you were told you "won", you most likely would be screaming or saying something. They re-taped the scene so you wouldn't hear a team celebrating that they got there first.

Hmm, I'm beginning to wonder if that shot of Brenchel is before the jet ski RB. Rachel R doesn't look very wet...though she does have a raincoat on during the task...idk

EDIT: Though after looking at the pic, she could still have her hair pinned up for the helmet: http://i.imgur.com/KJaUl.jpg?1?8809

How do you/we know that the jet ski is a RB.....maybe we have an actual detour this time......Jet Ski or ancient sled............who does which one in the promos/previews?

The finish line is a little isolate on that spit of sand.......maybe they have to use the paddleboards to get across those big ponds behind the beach?

Blond rachel is on both the sled and the jet ski though.

I just noticed in the latest preview that the blurred shot of the finish line "Not the end of the race", there are 4 teams on both the left and right.  The team on the right, closest to the mat, looks like a person in a yellow shirt  and light colored pants.  Ideas?

It has to be Vanessa and Ralph... the other 3 teams are shown doing tasks in Hawaii.

I doubt it, normally Phil says something like "8 countries, 21 days, more than 40,000 miles...".  More likely he says someone like "Hold it, hold it, quiet down a minute" to the receiving line(which is cut) and they show where he says "You are the first teams to arrive... however".

According to this 2005 article, there is only one actual lava sledding course on Oahu, and it is at Kaena Point.  That is at the extreme western tip of the north shore.  I imagine one could slide down other hills though? :duno:

Kaena Point is near Dillingham Airfield, a possible point of departure for helicopters.  (And once used used by the Hawaii 5-0 show  :))

I thought the only thing involving surf in the last leg of TAR14 was the RB (the surfboard fence).

The other half of the Detour in the TAR14 finale had to do with learning how to surf, IIRC.  Ask Luke for confirmation if you want.

I think these two images seem to be very telling in the potential finish order.  In the left-to-right and top-down way of reading it, it seems to go 1->2->3->4 in a Z pattern.  I don't think it's mere coincidence that it's the same order in these different shots, and it reinforces my suspicions that Dave & Rachel won.
