Biggest Skimboard Wave Ever

Brad Domke goes XXL in the most finless way possible

Too big for a finless board. Too big to be able to maintain any kind of control with that sort of speed. Too easy. I mean, Lord knows how many times Domke was massively ruined during this session, but that ride looked like cake. For him. But then, there are his hands.
