THE POWER OF GALICIA
Antonio da Silva whips in to Galicia's giant death slab.
A small band of lunatics took on this death slab in Galicia last Sunday. Out in the line-up, several tow teams attempted to navigate the wild conditions. But strong winds and bigger-than-expected waves made it near impossible to surf. Only Portugal's Antonio da Silva (towed by Ramon Laureado) ended up letting go of the rope. He also paid for it with one horrendous wipeout.
