5 minutes of ridiculous surf wipeouts and what causes them

Anyone who has ever set foot in the ocean and tried to ride a wave has likely experienced it: The Wipeout. They range from gentle splashes to violent bumps that turn you into a helpless rag doll. Regardless, the thrill of riding a good wave always outweighs the unfortunate experience of being dragged across the ocean floor.

In an ode to obliteration, surfer Brad Jacobson walks us through the many different types of obliterations and the errors each one causes. Watching this video not only offers interesting insights into surfing technology, but is also very entertaining. Because we’re being honest, watching other people extinguish for five minutes is a great distraction from work, housework, or anything else.

Sit back, relax and enjoy.
