Pain, let’s be honest it’s not something any of us are keen on.That is unless it’s happening to someone else, after seeing most of our most popular posts involve people getting seriously nailed. So here’s all the best wipeouts and serious slams from J.O.B and crew, pop the kettle on, grab a biscuit and get ready to watch his crew get pounded into reefs, the beach, concrete and anything else that gets in the way, ouchy times 10. Hit Play.
Nathan gives us a blow by blow account of what it’s like to get totally nailed at Chopes, from the drop to the moment he thought “this is not good.” To grabbing a last gasp of air before being drilled into the reef. Imagine being in the lip Chopes and trying to rotate your body to sacrifice your hands and feet first rather than your melon, hardcore stuff, hit play.
“I thought I was going to die. I thought I’d broke my back.”
Oh my days… Check James Holmer Cross’s horrifying wipeout at Pedra Branca 16 miles/30 kilometers south of Tasmania..”
The video was shot by Tim Bonython who took a last minute trip down to Pedra Branca, which is 26 kilometers off the South East Cape of Tasmania, Australia. Like some of the best big wave locations, Pedra Branca is extremely remote and is a really long way from help if anything goes wrong. 32 year-old Hobart local James Holmer-Cross came up close and personal with a gnarly wipe out, with a broken leg and torn ligaments, but luckily got to the surface and is frothing to get back out there.
