Don't no what all the fuss is about. I'm guessing that's what he was trying to do. Great fun, the only time Towan is worth a look is when it's bouncing of the sea wall. To try and answer the question whats he thinking, most likely trying to land upright, as it's about two feet deep when you come down from there. Great Phot!

I keep coming back to this shot and wonder what's going thru his mind. Could it be *I wish I'd gone down the pub instead* or *hope someone already call for an ambulance*.....but major respect.

Damn! Looks like he has much time to regret he didn`t stay in front of tv that day. He`s got to have big balls for that.
