Definitely not in this clip. Hopefully, the competition features better waves than what was shown here.
Much better than the first clip.
As you may have heard now, big wave surfer Mike Parsons took a hard fall at San Francisco Ocean Beach.
In solid 10-12 foot conditions, Parsons went over the falls where he took a bad fall suffering whiplash.
He ended up cracking a vertebrae and says that he was only saved by his floatation device. When he was underwater, he describes having limited utility of his arms. After he surfaced, he screamed for a nearby surfer to help him to get back to shore.
Parsons is expected to make a full recovery. The whole story is up on Surfline.
And if you are wondering who the fuck is Mike Parsons, take a look:
Irish slabs. Nice clip besides the motorcycle/car driving by midway through.
As you waited for waves during Mavericks, pros like the Hobgoods and Taylor Knox were taking advantage of huge barrels in San Francisco. BTW not sure what the screeching is as the musical accompaniment.
Mentaweis … The place to be?
