"Healey Rides Great White Sharks" by Brendan Thomas - Surfer.com

I randomly flipped open a Surfer magazine the other day and saw this cat just cruising along with a great white shark. Click on the link, this dude Mark Healey is a big-time big-wave surfer, getting totally gnar on 60-foot faces for his 9 to 5, and in his spare time he hitches rides on 20-foot-long great whites. Y'know, for kicks. (There's pictures.)

Two observations that may seem obvious:

1. This dude has nuts bigger than my head.

2. He won't see 30.

Live life, taste death, I guess.

  1. Did you just quote the character Suicide from the movie Ski Patrol? Its not every decade that you hear such a thing. You made my day.
