So…this is pretty hectic…Greg Long is one tough nut, but he suffered a “non-fatal drowning” while surfing the infamous Cortes Bank. That is pretty much drowning and being brought back by recuss…Something Maya is rumoured to have done twice…So,um. Yeah think about that. Dead and brought back to life. No wonder it’s a bit of a headspin.

Thankfully most big wave teams are pretty on it with the health and safety, but we can’t help thinking we are going to be seeing a few more incidents as boundaries are pushed in terms of size and locations, and things could get worse.
