... is way better than a dead one! For those of you that haven't yet seen it, check out Brad Hughes' Horrendous 2 Wave Hold Down! at "The Right" last weekend.
It seemed like a pretty standard wave for Hughesy, but with an ocean that raw and powerful, you can never let your guard down. Sitting in the saftey of a boat in the channel, it's almost as if we were holding our breath as long as Brad was hoping to see some sign of his board or head pop up to the surface. Thankfully Rawlins and Chaddy had put their ski in a position that the minute they saw him, they'd be there to scoop him up and get him to saftey.
The beating has taken Brad a few days to recover from, but given that he suffered no major damage, I'm sure you'll see him as keen as ever to tackle the next swell that graces our shores! That's what makes him one of the best, if not, THE best big wave bodyboarder on the planet!
