Eat­ing SH*T

New Zealand Surfing - - Beatings -

Noth­ing dis­plays the risks as­so­ci­ated with surf­ing more than a heavy wipe­out, the gen­eral pub­lic love them and the surf videos used to be full of epic wipe­out sec­tions. In re­cent times the good old wipe­out has gone miss­ing in ac­tion from surf me­dia, so we thought we would bring it back in style. While a small wave wipe­out can be ul­tra hi­lar­i­ous for ones mates and on­look­ers, a heavy or large wave take down leaves any au­di­ence gasp­ing and ques­tion­ing - how the hell do they sur­vive that? Some­times con­se­quences can be dis­as­trous how­ever more of­ten than not the surfer in ques­tion sim­ply pops up af­ter the beat­ing of their life and pad­dles back out, shakes it off and gets stuck into it again. We bring to you a small col­lec­tion of beat­ings that we have gath­ered dur­ing our trav­els. Have a laugh or sim­ply shake your head in awe!
