What's with the bald guy going out on the red board with no fins? That totally insane.


Knocked off by the ROCKS? I've been down there on a number of huge swells. Launching off the ROCKS with no jet ski backup is insane.

Amateur surfers launch there with nothing these days. The wave is so fast that the ones who survive the rocks cant usually paddle into it, so that saves them.Maybe he lost his fin on those same rocks and decided it was easier to paddle without it. There is often a gaggle of surfers just sitting on their boards watching who know the deal and dont paddle in. They dont need fins.
