This is a compilation of the worst wipeouts from the 2023 Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational surfing competition in Hawaii, in which waves have to be at least 20-feet tall for the competition to begin. That is not a competition you’ll see me participating in. And not just because it’s an invitational and I’m not even invited to weddings or birthday parties anymore, but that’s certainly part of it. There’s also the fact I wiped out bodyboarding a 2-foot swell once and swallowed sand and have sworn off the oceans ever since. “Fill them all with concrete,” I’ll tell anybody who will listen to me, and yell at people who won’t.
