Mavericks wasn’t the only break that was pumping this weekend. Australian big wave charger, Jeff Rowley, took a beating after challenging Pe’ahi’s giant swell in Maui, Hawai’i. Rowley is known for pushing the limits when it comes to big wave surfing and this time, the giant swell pushed back viciously, taking him under and plowing ten waves on top of his head after the initial impact.
“This was a total battery drainer, I get smoked and then copped another 10 waves on the head,” Rowley said.
Thankfully, Rowley recovered from the wipeout without any injury and was glad to have it caught on video.
