that's the ballsiest thing iv'e ever seen anyone do, paddle a gun out and catch a wave at jaws with a board that size and no jet ski you break your legs or get a concussion there could be no jetski around to save you.

Do you paddle into waves that big,let alone pull into waves that big, on a regular basis ? I suspect not ! You know what they say about people with an overly critical nature...

He paddled into it - and judging by the comment below,i get the impression he aint a big wave charger > so give the guy a break > do you pull into waves that big in a regular basis ? Dont think so knobby.

This is a real feat. It appears this surfer is paddling into serious Jaws. If it is a tow...why post the photo. If this is really a paddle in, this photo means a lot of people will revise what can be done without a Yamaha. Time to man-up.

Then take a right at waimea. If you see a big tree with a one eyed dog with his arse to the wind turn back, you've gone too far....

You can enter the date taken when you upload the shot - no need to upload it same day.

Nah koala it should be the forecast for the photo but it does rely on the photog putting in the exact date.

Board $40. Health insurance $200. The feeling of flying down this face.... PRICELESS.

I think if hes riding a stick that cost him 40 bucks at jaws I doubt he's forking out for the life cover. where would he get the insurance for that any, madef*%$ersareus.com, Over-the-edge insurance...
