It's been dubbed "The Big Ugly," the biggest day ever surfed on one of the world's grandest big wave stages. And it produced what some are calling the "worst wipeout of all time."
Since that crazy motherfucker Flea is from our hometown, his free-falling performance at Maverick's even makes our balls hang a little lower, our whiskey go down a little easier, and our urge to sleep on a bed of nails a little stronger.
Man, the riders that day had as much of a chance against those seawalls as do Rashard Mendenhall and Juice Williams against USC in the Rose Bowl.
