The last week brought us some huge waves to the North Shore and some crazy weather. I saw some crazy wipeouts from surfers which reminded me of trying to surf a 12′6″ SUP race board in double overhead waves. I thought I’d post these photos are from last year’s Turtle Bay Challenge surf race. The waves were pounding that day and there were some pretty gnarly wipeouts. I figured that if one of the world’s best water athletes were wiping out then I was much better off taking pictures than testing my luck in the water. Lol.
Even the winner, Kai Lenny, got pounded:
We have to give kudos to the ladies because no matter when their heat was, there was double overhead surf waiting for them. I’m surprised that people didn’t get hurt.
