I dunno that the fact that he very fortunately face planted just to the side of the pourover and not right on top of it constitutes worse case scenario.
I might even call that best case scenario seeing as he didn't break his face on the rock and came out of the hole.
I wouldn't be one to discourage an activity just because there's the possibility of breaking one's face, but I do a little surfing in the sea and come off the board in lots of ways I wouldn't want to in the river.
That being said, my wife and I were down at the beach a few months ago and a huge swell was in and there were some guys on sup's killing it.
Strange the amount of hype this "new" sport has been generating. It's like every enthusiast right now is hawking some accessories. I think the difference with snowboarding and some other spin-offs is that usually people want to protect it like a "secret spot."
You guys seem to be taking more of an Amway approach.
