After other action sports sites started posting screen shots of this kid, Brad Domke, sliding down the face of a huge wave, it was hard to believe that the pictures weren’t photo-shopped. But here it is, full video evidence of this awesome accomplishment at Puerto Escondido. To make things even more insane, the Floridian was out in the lineup with pro big wave chargers, like Shane Dorien, all wearing inflation vests and riding relatively stable guns.
As to why Brad was out there without an inflation vest, he told his sponsors Exile: “I actually have my own theory about that — I think I swim better than I float, and being able to dive deeper helps me get out of sketchy situations.”
We could watch this video over and over again, enjoy:
