Punch it through the back... just make sure your head hits the face of the wave straight on, not sideways. You don't want to hit the surface of the water ear first.

I love a good closeout. It means you are going for it. "mayyyybe I can make this one" ... sh*t buffet. Seems like for me it's always a crime of opportunity. If it's really steep and I'm about to get pounded I just dive off and swim to the bottom. If i'm stuck in a bad place I usually step off the back and go into the fetal position, this sucks though because I have come up with a mouth full of surfboard before. Best option is to punch through the back, not much of a learning curve on that one, you either make it through or get tossed over the falls... or try to straighten out and hope to outrun it. As my long time surfing friend always says, "Gotta pay to play!"
and coleslaw, that's intense.

Jump forward into the face. Try to break through the back and get a breathe of air before you get ragollded over the falls.
