Mark Healey just released full footage of what it’s like to be caught under two waves at Maverick’s, and it’s not pretty. Healey, however, seems to remain rather calm under pressure.
Here’s his description of what went down, in the full unaltered clip:
“I realized that even though this video has been posted numerous times and played on TV stations around the world, it has never been posted in it’s entirety. This gives you a better glimpse of what a two wave hold down at Mavericks is really like. This is what inspires my training techniques. Hard cardio output straight into anaerobic situations. The cold water flush makes it much harder to deal with, as the shock of your wetsuit getting completely flushed gives your body an automatic “gasp” response. Gotta pay to play!”
Hats off to ya, Healey!
