Remember bodysurfing as a kid? Swimming as fast as possible to get a little boost from the wave, only to crash down and get tossed around by the ocean water? As a kid, I always dreamed of taking it into bigger waves. As an adult, I see why that would probably be a bad idea. While someone like me would likely wound up injured or worse, Kelani Lattanzi has chosen to take it to some of the biggest waves in the world.

I didn’t even know there were professional bodysurfers out there, let alone bodysurfers hitting notoriously dangerous waves like Mavericks. There’s even an international body surfing world tour. It’s all pretty darn cool, but definitely not something I’d be brave enough to even come close to participate in.
