When you are travelling the world charging 100ft mountains of water there is bound to be some repercussion. Big wave mad man Garrett McNamara had the scare of a life time when he and fellow waterman Josh Tracy attempted to stand up paddle out into the line up through a small key hole surrounded by rocks at Waimea.
Garrett discusses pre-paddle out how dangerous it is and one wrong move could be deadly only to be cleaned up by a 20ft faced wave moments later which drags Garrett and Josh across the rocks as friends on the beach watch helplessly in horror. Watch it unfold.
