  1. is just epic of how much stupidity the steward had that he didnt even saw the wave from up there and didnt warn anyone…
    plain PLAIN stupidity

  2. I'd downvote anyone greedy and stupid enough to claim copyright of this, and offer licensing!

    You're not exception.

  3. Viscious idiots laughing. I surf in SC and see those types all of the time. Karma will get them! Innocent people who didn't know trusted the event organizers. No one should EVER laugh when people get hurt. Mean nasty spiritless ghosts.

  4. Gee lets see. Massive waves are coming in so, I'll sit precariously on jagged rocks and hope for the best. What a bunch of dumb asses!

  5. Moonstone Beach in Cambria,Ca. is nicknamed "Body Snatchers" because unsuspecting flatlanders get caught by surges from big sets of waves. It often is as calm as a lake for 30- 45 minutes, then 8-12 big waves hit and clean the beach like a tsunami.

  6. Always good to have a bunch of PA & other electronic gear next to a giant body of water with everyone walking around barefoot.

  7. Is this just really ironic? Surfers going to watch people ride big waves getting battered by the thing they came to see?

  8. fucking idiots!!!! why see if anyone's hurt when we can just laugh about everyone getting wiped out by the break

  9. Some people are so damned ignorant. That wave was strong enough to kill someone if it rammed them into metal. Jesus some morons will laugh at anything.  I was concerned and they're laughing. Idiots. Bet they wouldn't laugh if it happened to them. I am astounded at the stupidity of some human beings. Laughing and clapping..OMG!!! Retards.

  10. Welp… They were told several times not to do that. If anyone got seriously hurt, that'd suck… but it's their own fault!

  11. I don't care what warnings were given out, you don't laugh at people getting hurt, unless you're sick in the head or a sadist. You tell a 6 year old not to get up on a table, she does it anyways, falls and breaks a leg or hits her head and is knocked out with blood pouring from her head, are you going to just laugh at her and walk away?

  12. I am afraid not to understand what a surf contest exactly is, in this case. People have to stay on a shore and wait for a huge wave to surf on ?

  13. سبحان الله. يصفقون للخطر و يضحكون بدلا من ان يقشعروا و من معجزة الله. مجانين و بي امتياز

  14. Unfortunately, few surfers study the floor around there. As a result, several die every year. When l surfed, there were only a couple dozen of us and the crowds were small. No big resorts, no huge crowds. And to go out you have to be towed. The waves have too much force to paddle -out.

  15. how many people got hurt that day…..lucky nothing else happened,hoped they learn something on that day, won't be so lucky next time.
