Gash Gore

New Zealand Surfing - - News -

Gra­ham Dow was re­cently surf starved due to an over­load of work com­mit­ments, yet once the smoke cleared Gra­ham was itch­ing to get out to sam­ple a few per­fect look­ing waves at his lo­cal. “It was an­other primo day again here in the Naki, and af­ter three weeks of be­ing out of the wa­ter (work­ing) I was so amped as Waizy’s was go­ing off. Pad­dling out I duck dived two waves, and the third a set wave hol­lowed out in front of me crash­ing on the mid­dle of my back. It was too late when I re­alised it was only two feet deep. I held on as tight as one can, but the board was ripped from my grip and vi­o­lently washed around un­der the wa­ter. The rail smashed into my cheek and it was board vs cheek bone, to which some­thing had to give and that was the meat be­tween. I could feel the flap wav­ing around un­der the wa­ter and when I sur­faced I was in a sea of red! It was so gut­ting as I didn’t even catch a F...ing wave and it looked so good!!!” The top blokes at Skull Candy feel your pain Gra­ham and to ease that some­what will be styling you out with some thump­ing head­phones, con­grat­u­la­tions and see you back in the wa­ter soon! Think you've got the goods for the next is­sue and want a shot at the Skull Candy head­phones. Show us your wor­thy gash and we'll be the judge.
