Another pro surfer spins another good old yarn for Red Bull’s ‘That One Time’ series. This time it’s Rob Bain, and that one time he almost died at G-Land.
“In 1994, professional surfer Rob Bain planned a journey to G-Land on the Indonesian island of Java. It could have been the perfect trip – with good waves and a great crew – but intuition had argued that something was off. Still, Rob and (most of) the crew pushed forward and went anyway. The result? A tsunami, an eerie encounter with life’s dark end and an experience that is described as being ‘tickled by the hand of death’.”
