Biggest Skimboard Wave Ever

Brad Domke goes XXL in the most finless way possible

| posted on July 14, 2014

We’ll have more with Brad Domke soon, but in the meantime, watch this clip of him skimming across an enormous, terrifying wave at Puerto. The first few times I watched it, a nagging sense that some kind of editing trickery was afoot began to creep in. The wave is just too big. 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. Look at those things. Watch the clip again, and this time just watch his hands and arms flail around, desperately clinging to air, trying to maintain a precious iota of balance.

No faking that.

    what? He got towed in so he coulda been using the door of a fridge for all I care.

      And that would be just as impressive sep. You’d probably drown in surf like this and it goes without saying that you wouldn’t make a wave so lighten up and enjoy it for what it is.
