Aaron Gold's Near-Death Surf Accident @ Tavarua, Fiji

By

Listen to Aaron Gold’s sobering tale of a near-death accident at Tavarua.  One of the gnarliest, underground big-wave surfers on the planet (World Record holder for biggest wave ever paddled at Jaws), Aaron’s the guy who normally keeps it under control in the most chaotic of circumstances. The following story is what it’s like when the worst happens to one of the world’s best:

“When something like this happens to me…it puts it into perspective for all of us. For myself, for my peers, all of us. You just never put it in perspective that it’s going to happen to you. Even with all my training for safety and to be safe, being able to implement it when the time comes is key.” –Aaron Gold
