OK. I’m going to say conservatively that from the tip of that boarder’s fin to the tip of his board is seven feet. Pick that little guy up and you can easily get three of him which is a 20’+ face…

Crash landing and a quick prayer to the Wedge gods below that the falls don’t bring him back over. Probably a worthless prayer. He’s goin’ over.

All eyes were on this guy as he washed in… he was out surfing when blackball was up which is a no-no… he went for a wave, caught it, wiped out, his board washed up, the lifeguards grabbed it and he strutted up like “What?!”… the crowd loved it… he got a stern something from the NB lifeguards but I think that was about it…
