I got stabbed in my foot by my fin from Gloria. Doc sewed sand and sea monkeys in the wound and I ended up with gangrene. I got out of that hospital and went to a real one with 'Merkin docs. they had to cut out an artery and muscle. I was laid up for 3 months.
I don't remember the storm. It was over 14 years ago.
I was sitting on the outside and this sick set rolled in. I totally chickened out. But as the 1st wave passed me, it broke almost 6 feet away from me, and it sucked me and my board over the falls. From flat water! Never saw anything like this. Didn't even know it was possible.
I took a major beating from the entire set, but I guess I deserve it for not going in the first place.
