It was very noticeable at the Pe'ahi contest, when competitors went flying thru the air over the handlebars, they tried to get them arms down by their sides. Looked totally kamikaze not doing the instinctive thing of getting your arms forward to brace for impact. I'm surposing the bad shoulder injuries to Garrett McNamara and Mark Matthews (amoungst others) with arms being violently wrenched has resulted in a change of wipeout technique from the big wave maniacs.

Wouldn't this mean you'd risk breaking your neck?

Yes, it looks more far more dangerous. They seem to try to land on their chest, which has some extra protection with the big wave inflatable vest they all wear.

Steve, I can feel something incubating but I'm not sure what it is yet.

Music is healing in much the same way that immersion in the ocean is.

It stems from my Cretan (Sfakia -look 'em up) ancestry.

Could you visit Da Cat's grave and pay respects for me while you're in Californiay?

Footage of Renato Hickel, WSL dude surfing Kelly's pool.

As a competent but obv's recreational surfer.....he makes the wave look pretty ordinary.

he's not even surfing, really. no attempt to stall and get covered up. just trimming. maybe there's a backstory there, like he's surfing with a torn achilles tendon, or was knee-capped the night before with buckshot from an old duck hunting rifle someone found?

... anyway, that's good contrast right there, shep. that wave looked like high tide alex headland, but going left, not right.

Maybe his mission was a full length ride.
The wave still looks pretty sensational given that the wind is onshore.

It's very, very rare that I see a surf video and think I could surf better than that.
Even when it's preceded by 'look at this fcuking kook, why would you upload this shit?!'

But I think this might be one of those times.
