Worst wipe out and where ?« on: January 12 2008 12:01:00 »
I was at Sebastion inlet two years ago and I caught this one wave that doubled up and it through me into the jetty and my boards nose landed under my eye. 37 stitches and 4 broken bones. Worst wipe out in my history.
So anybody else not including a certain Kook that we all know and loathe want to share their story ?

yep. i was surfing at back door, turned to avoid a shark, got hit by the barrol, got one leg ripped off by the reef, then the shark bit an arm off, then my broken board sliced and cut my head off and then i drowned. im ok now though - still got one arm and leg and surf at least once a day. RaD :)

That was nothing. I was surfing a epic day at Durrand Eastman park. The set waves were breaking 80-90 ft and the Lake riders measure them by the back of the waves, so the face of the wave was more like 145 feet. I took off on one of these monsters and Tom with his Longboard snaked me and I went flying into his trailer....traylor....hoome hard. When I landed there, I broke every bone in my body. Then to make things weres. I landed some how on the one and only Killer Bees nest in NY. 120,000,000 Killer bees with an atittude stung me. As if that wasn't painful enouph, another wave rolled in and washed me up on the only fire ant nest on his yard.

Now after breaking all my bones, then being attacked by Millions of Africanised Honey bees that somehow skipped the whole southern coast making it up to of all places .....Rochester NY. Somehow I also landed on the only nest of Fire Ants in Rochester too. The pain was excrutiating. But that still only covers half this wipe out tail. I jumped into Toms Kiddie pool, that for some reason was made out of Steel and instead of water, it was Hidracloric and battery acid. My skin and innerds were melted away. Tom came up to me and told me to always ask to use his pool . Then he asked if I needed a bandaide. Never surf with Tom. I' still surfing though.

Boiling Pot at Noosa Heads in the 70s.
A cuy took off deep and a drop in happened in front of the guy.
The inside guy ran his face into the back of the single skeg
and it just opened up his face like the flaps of his first tube ride out of the womb.

Ouch !!!!! I was paddling out into the line up at Bells Beach, and wave came up that I Duckdived under. Aparently, I didn't see the surfer , and all I remember was the water turning red coming back up. My cheeck was litterally hanging off my face as I took the next wave into the beach. Bummer, Because I couldn't surf for two weeks and there was a great swell during that time.

I was out in Fresno in the lineup and a asteroid hit me in the nuts. I'm not kidding. You wouldn't believe how painful it was.
