Mind-Blowing Fall Recovery

Is this the ultimate fall-to-bodysurf-to-recovery ever?

| posted on August 04, 2014

If wiping out is an art, this recovery is a masterpiece of Picasso proportions. Mikey Wright, kin of World Tour stars Owen and Tyler, does what appears to be the ultimate fall-to-bodysurf-to-recovery ever. After pearling on his second turn, his board pops through the lip only to be pulled back into the wave by his leash. Then, through a combination of whitewash, physics, and luck, it plops down right in front of where he’s bodysurfing, allowing for a clean mount back onto it.

This isn’t the first incredible fall recovery at a left point. A couple months back, Ramon Navarro had a similar logic-defying wipeout. But we must say, Mikey Wright’s is slightly more impressive because he’s able to continue pumping down the line after whereas Ramon’s wave closes out.

    Hmmm. Why is it video of a video playing instead of just the original footage?

      Everyone knows its easier to take a video of a video and upload it and post it, rather than just posting the original. Just makes sense.
