We know it’s cold out there right now, but if you’re wishing away the winter weather, we’ve got a reminder for you about what could be a..err..downside of summer. This week’s Trauma Tuesday features some big wipeouts on big waves. Surfing is a high-octane balance of talent, elegance, and luck. When executed properly, riding a wave is a surge of sensory emotions and thrills. When you miss footing or cut too hard, though, you can be sent into a barreling, body-contorting wipeout. We’ll start off with a little inspiration, and a little reality check. Here, for your Tuesday entertainment, the big wave edition: when surfers thrive, and when they FAIL.
