This is the dark side of the sport. Watching surf videos, we all wonder how the hell these guys survive surfing such powerful, gigantic waves. What happens when they wipe out and the wave eats them?
This is what you never see.
This is what happened to the fearless guys who were eaten and spit out by some of the strongest forces of nature on the planet in 2014.
They save the freakiest wave ever surfed for last, make sure you watch to the end, or skip to 7:30.
