Jamie Mitchell, Belharra

Of this wipeout, Australian hellman Jamie Mitchell said, “On the wave I rode, I slipped down and was then sucked back over the falls. It wasn’t a super long hold down, but it was pretty violent and when I came up, and was facing the other way. I turned around and the next wave was even bigger. I was just sitting there knowing no one could help me and I looked in the channel and everyone is just looking at you. I was the full deer in the headlights and there was 60 foot of whitewater coming straight at me. I was just bobbing in the ocean waiting for it to hit me.”
