Ever wonder what it takes to survive a big wave hold down?Posted by World Surf League on Sunday, 23 July 2017
Surviving a Big Wave Hold Down
This short video is sponsored by TAG Heuer and so the use of the term “Don’t crack under pressure“, their
tag line, is a little cheesy, but other than that it’s a good insight into the power and danger that big wave surfers are chasing.
Luckily the gear and surfing expertise are getting better all the time, because this is allowing people to continue to find and manage to surf larger, thicker, faster and more remote waves all the time.
I think that to survive a terrible big wave wipe-out and get back out there amongst the same or even bigger waves demonstrates just how powerful the attraction is and how meaningful the rewards of a great day out there really are.
