The Body Glove Mavericks Invitational presented by GoPro went down in heavy conditions on Friday, January 24th, 2014 in Half Moon Bay, California. In just the first heat of the day, GoPro athlete Mark Healey was caught in a frightening situation when he took two giant Mavericks waves on the head. Competitors and spectators watched helplessly from the channel, all while rescue teams scrambled to help.
Thanks to hours of training and years of experience, Healey was able to return to the lineup just a little shaken up, but without a scratch.
Footage shot 100% on the GoPro camera.
Mavericks generously pumped out some of the best waves for competition in years, allowing athletes to document incredible rides. Despite countless perfectly executed rides, there were certainly plenty of cringe-worthy wipeouts. Watch the worst wipeouts from Body Glove Mavericks Invitational 2014 presented by GoPro:
