    A bit of context on what you are about to see. I was wrapping shooting some surf pics Friday night. It was about 55 degrees air and water and misty and it was getting dark when this young couple shows up with a SUP and no wetsuits I knew there was about to be a show and I knew I couldn't leave.

    First the boyfriend paddles out and gets annihilated and comes right back in. Got some funny shots of him. Next he sends his girlfriend out there. She caught a lull and squirted right out the back. Now what.

    Here is what happened next. Enjoy!

    Oh, man... that's brutal. Did you know you can actually tell the temperature of the water by the color of a Shoobie's skin?

    I watched that board bounce up and land right in the spot I though her head would be. Then a couple frames later she's got her hand on her head. Nailed it!

    My son was getting out of the water and I had him run down to help her. Her clueless boyfriend was oblivious to the rocks she was heading for with the current. She got her feet under her and made it in. It was almost dark when this went down that's why the pictures are so grainy.

    Sorry guys. You snooze you lose. It was a fairly epic sequence I captured of a young lady on a SUP getting destroyed by an overhead set wave as she paddled towards shore with her back turned to the ocean completely oblivious to the set coming to get her. She got picked up and thrown over the handlebars by the biggest wave to come in for about half an hour. A very very good candidate for Kookslams.

    It was up for about 48 hours here and on my instagram but I took it down due to some of the comments on instagram. Someone tagged the young lady and she did reply and was a totally good sport about it but I wasn't comfortable with the other comments coming in. The instagram post was seen and shared many many times. At the end of the day, she's somebody's daughter.

    I've never had anything blow up like that on instagram. It was pretty freaking funny.

    In all honesty it happens all the time and if people are that sensitive about it and they're probably sensitive about way too many things in life.

    Now that the social media thing with this clip is long gone I will bring it back here briefly for those who missed it. Turn up the sound for full effect. Keep your comments respectable. ;):)o_O

    Right on CJ. That soundtrack is perfect!

    I was almost expecting a Batman stylee "BONK" to explode across the screen at the moment the board seems to hit her head. Haha. Keep up the good work.

    (In honor of full disclosure, I'm glad there haven't been any sharp lensed photogs around for some of my more kook moments.)

    Haha that wasn't too bad. They're out in full effect tho u guys are right. I paddled around to test my sprained wrist. Saw couple of them bout 30 ft past the break. What sux is when I don't check the beach before leaving the island, cuz I see a line of cars w boards coming in. It's fomo n kookery, derived from fake news n morons
