    I went out around 6:30 last night and was getting so fvcking pitted and then BAM!

    Head first into the sandbar
    No time to put my hands down or anything
    Neck cracked and right arm went all hot and tingly
    Get up and walk up to my girlfriend who snaps a quick photo
    Walk home with a full heart of STOKE

    I have been getting some funny looks at the office this morning though...

    It happens... no joke. ALWAYS in the back of my mind when I'm bodysurfing.

    Battle scars dude!

    At least you got one doing something rad. My dumb a$& once decided to dive into the 4' pool on the rooftop of blue green in AC. Nose and chin sanded down a bit. Was too drunk to feel it... That was the first day there out of a 4 day weekend. It was great.

    A good surfer always knows where all the sand is at all times. Always.

    It's all fun and games until that one grain of sand jumps out at you.

    You heard it here first. Always recon the sand.



    Always

    this is why i only bodysurf when the waves are good and there's deeper water. snapping your neck in 2 foot shorebreak is a dumb move. not worth it. so much fun getting a long azz ride using nothing but fins and a lunchtray.
