Fud... Agora vou voltar com a onda... Respira, calma e mantém o corpo junto para proteger os membros! E... Algo puxou minha perna e me tirou do eixo! Claro a prancha... A cordinha é super grossa e é feita para não romper... Mas graças a Deus ela quebra com a tensão e eu estou livre. Uma dor enorme na virilha esquerda! Isso é o de menos... Estou vivo e tenho que voltar à superfície! Procuro controlar meus braços... Está difícil devido à turbulência! Mas tenho que acionar os flutuadores extras para chegar à superfície! Estou muito no fundo e tomando porrada de tudo que é lado. Finalmente unindo as duas mãos consigo inflar o colete extra e começar minha saga rumo ao ar que tanto preciso! Fiquei muito tempo aqui embaixo e espero não ficar duas ondas debaixo d'água... Sinto que estou perto da superfície,,, me preparo para respirar... No meio da respiração outra onda me pega e tudo começa novamente... Foram quatro ondas até que finalmente subo no Jet e retorno para minha bateria!

Beware the sea-snake attached to your ankle, for it is a capricious beast. One moment it will leap to your defence, reuniting you with the buoyancy of your beloved surfboard, or fending off a curious great white; the next it will entwine itself around you like a boa constrictor and squeeze with the might of oceans.

Legendary Brazilian hellman Carlos Burle was stok-ed to make it out alive after a recent run-in with Jaws, but not so stok-ed with the fierce pain in his left leg inflicted by his mutinous leash. Probably pretty stok-ed with the bruise though! For those, like us, not privy to the mysteries of Portuguese, below is an English version of Carlos's message, meticulously translated by Google. It reads like a glorious prose poem, does it not?

Fud ... Now I'm back with the wave ... Breathe, calm and keeps the body together to protect members! And ... something pulled my leg and pulled me out of the shaft! Clear the board ... The cordinha is super thick and is made not to break ... But thank God she breaks the tension and I am free. A huge pain in the left groin! That's the least of it ... I'm alive and I have to return to the surface! I try to control my arms ... It's difficult because of the turmoil! But I have to drive the extra floats to reach the surface! I am very deep and taking punches all it's side. Finally uniting the two hands can inflate the extra vest and get my saga into the air so much need! I was a long time down here and hopefully not get two waves underwater ... I feel I am near the surface ,,, I prepare to breathe ... In the middle of breath another wave catches me and it all starts again ... were four waves until finally climb on the jet and return to my battery!
