So he SUP'd into the wave and then hopped off and got onto the little finless plank, why? Looks like he's about to get pitched

Maybe he just punched the SUP dude in the head before dropping in on his wave. You can't see him anymore 'cause he fell out the backside. Darn SUP's get too many waves anyway.

I apologise for my outlandish statement. i only saw the sequence after i made the comment... Respect to this ou, balls of steel for chargeing on an ironing board, WTF? and the innovative way to get momentum to get onto the wave, well done!!! However i still recon SUP's should suck the big hairy balls of this charger

Don't tread on our fantasies of beating on SUP's.

Do you know what you are talking about???? This guy paddled the SUP while standing on it on his piece of ply, caught the wave and the jumped off on the ply and surfed it better than most board riders (check the 2 pics of him riding the ply) He checked there was nobody in the danger zone in front of his SUP before going for the wave. This is on a wave that very few people were surfing due to its nature. Plenty watch it but not so many ride it. Full respect to this guy who also apparantly surfs a bodyboard very well

Hope the surfer on the wave pounded the SUP. Those arseholes need to be taught a lesson, and unserstand that not every wave is theirs and Laird Hamilton is the only bloke who should be allowed to operate those pieces of shit

I hope he's alone out there ? Its one issue to take these things into the line up but to then abandon it ... lookout on the inside ! Despite that, fantastic concept ! From the sequence i sea he's now riding a ply board with straps ? Expect to sea alot more of this in the surf press soon ! Well done winston & MSW

some bizzare spaceship-like fuel tank jetisoning procedure to get deeper without a ski?
