StRaNGe Beautiful LIFE - Episode 5: Mad dogs and Englishmen - months in the making thanks to an injury.
Injury's suck, there's no way of glossing over it, but despite this you try and kid yourself. ''Oh it wont take too long'' you say over and over again. You fill your days with 'stuff' and you get on with it. But when you're constantly striving for the optimum wave riding experience, seeking to slap a grin on that dial, and it controls your every thought, day-in day-out, and then WHAM it departs - injury's really do suck.
It's inevitable at some point you're going kook it and things can get pear-shaped real quick. One minute you think you're God's gift to surfing and then the next minute "WA PA" you're rolling around in the whitewater wondering if your leg is still attached.
This episode of StRaNGe Beautiful Life was filmed in two parts. The first part was filmed just before I tried to be all Bruce ''look no hands'' Irons and got a lip to the head - immediately confirming that I'm no Bruce Irons, and yes I do feel pain, especially when tearing the Medial Collateral Ligament and Meniscus in my knobbly knee.
