Trick being hailed as the best in the sport's history

This is pretty epic!

Surfer pulls off trick hailed as the greatest in sport?s history | World of Sport - Yahoo! Eurosport UK

Any RS surfers out there?

I use to be pretty into the sport years ago. Been surfing in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Oregon. Has subscriptions to Surfer Magazine and watched a shit pile a movies....I miss it.

Mad props for pulling it off but it blows my mind that that's the best trick in the history of surfing... I guess it is because it looks so deceptively similar to snowboarding and yet snowboarding has reached such incredible heights on the tricks being done.

I know nothing about snowboarding, skateboarding, or surfing, but the first two are done on land. You have some control over the conditions of what you're 'boarding on, but you have zero control over wave conditions - so that must make surfing all the more difficult.

I can tell you that at times, it can be terrifying.

I was held under in Oregon for a few waves after I had the wind knocked out of me. I really thought I was going to die.

For the next 4 days I have salt water leaking out my nose and ears....so gross.
