Bodyboarding (boogie boarding to be really pedantic) not body surfing. That’s backwash where the waves are bouncing off the shoreline, going both out and in at the same time. This was completely intentional. And fun. I.e. nothing went wrong.

Backwash is fucking fun as shit. This is exactly what you want when bodyboarding.
14 Jan 2018 16:34 - +184
That was intentional? But man, if you get the timing wrong, you're going to **EAT IT.** Because if you end up in the *trough* of the bounce, you're going to land in a spot with no little to no water between you and the rock-hard bottom. .

Here's bodyboarding (sponging, dick dragging, boogering). He hits the backwash and gets launched. It's a nice wave, pretty hollow, could have got shacked if he was deeper in the pocket.

Nothing really went wrong tbh.
14 Jan 2018 13:47 - +19
Shit did he land in the deep water or nah?
14 Jan 2018 14:33 - +18
Is this the wedge?

This subreddit has been on its game lately .
14 Jan 2018 14:54 - +9

14 Jan 2018 17:12 - +5

Is that Bodie? "Utah, get me two."

That looked pretty fun but also like it coulda hurt a little
14 Jan 2018 21:09 - +2
That actually looks fun

Rule one: Always catch the high tide.

Radical gnarly tubular bodacious boogie board bro!

I'd love to hear some cartoon sounds to this.

That seems hella fun. I don’t see what the problem is here.
14 Jan 2018 22:33 - +1
So what went wrong?

I bet that left a mark.

Can someone explain to me what in the actual hell just happened there?
14 Jan 2018 19:59 - +1
When two waves collide like that it is called "clapotis".
14 Jan 2018 20:33 - +1
This looks like The Wedge in Newport. It looks like a second wave it hitting the first wave, causing that explosion at the end.
14 Jan 2018 21:37 - +1
He dieded?
14 Jan 2018 18:23 - +1
So pitted

This reminds me of that sub full of people imitating shrimp.

Nothing went wrong lol. We do this for fun!

So... is he naked?

That didn't go wrong, it went right. That's precisely the type of backwave I always tried to catch when I was bodysurfing (which this is not, it's boogie boarding for the record)

[I'll leave a more recent video of a bodyboarder copping it hard](https://www.facebook.com/7newssydney/videos/1683656884991771/)

His launch reminds me of Calvin in this Calvin and Hobbes cartoon: https://nucking-futbar.deviantart.com/art/Calvin-Hobbes-Bathtub-Colour-38837583

Boogie boarding. FTFY

Watch that undertow, yo.

Weeeeeeeeeee...FUCK!...dead.
14 Jan 2018 17:44 - +1
He got so pitted, dude.
14 Jan 2018 22:34 - +1
That splash was because the bottom became shallow hope he didn’t break his neck on the way down
14 Jan 2018 18:09 - +1
KOOK SLAMS!
14 Jan 2018 13:04 - +1
That isn't what happened. This was likely planned because of the wave superposition.
14 Jan 2018 18:12 - +1
I would do it even if there was a chance to get hurt, this looks so much fun.

I personally took a hit like this at Folly Island South Carolina. A girl had lost her raft to an eddy near a seawall and wasn't big enough to go get it. Being the man on the spot I swim in and bring the raft out. As I turn to head back to the sand bar me and my buddies were launching from I see one of the best waves (big as OPs) I ever saw. Not thinking about it I superman into it and my velocity was such my head and upper torso were thrust out of the crest. As I open my eyes I realize the error of my waves as I am about to be dashed into the seawall. Looking down I see the double edged sword of my savior in an returning wave and it came right up at me and according to people on the seawall it launched me 30 feet into the air.

Bodysurf and body slam at the same time

That was epic even if it was painful and life threatening!

Those are pussy ass-aves compared to Jaws and Mavericks where I exclusively surf. Why bother with lesser waves? While all those "big-name" surfers like Laird ride custom boards, I take on the monster swells on my 7 foot Rusty pop-out funboard. I'm pretty great I guess.
