Don’t Be This Guy: Mav’s Surfer Messes Himself

The new crew at the helm of the Mavericks Surf Contest is spicing things up a bit and getting creative. Between doubling up the prize purse and reaching out to viewers who have probably never seen a surf competition in their lives, they’ve made quite a splash in the big-wave event scene so far, and they have yet to even put on a single competition at Mavericks. Now….it looks like they’re getting viral on us.

If you haven’t peeped the recent clip of a guy pulling a shark’s tooth out of his leg at Mav’s, you might want to give it a look. I have to admit, I watched that thing over and over for an hour and still couldn’t decide it it was legit or not. I leaned toward it being a fake, and a few of our readers backed me up on that notion. However after deciding it was a clever viral attempt, a friend of mine sent me an article detailing the near-miss at Mavericks. Who knows?

One of the main reasons I’ve had a hard time accepting the clip as being legitimate is that another similarly filmed clip is now floating around. It’s titled humiliation, and basically shows a surfer having the all too familiar problem of shitting himself upon seeing a set wave drill a guy attempting to drop in.

Both clips end the same way, highlighting the words “pain” and “humiliation” while directing viewers to the home of the Mavericks Surf Contest. Hence, the uneducated conclusion that they are merely a clever viral attempt by the new Mav’s Surf Contest crew.

The holding period for the Mavericks Surf Contest runs until March 31, stay tuned for more updates-

    I am leaning towards fake also. The film clip of the wave looks like film and the surfers are shot in digital.
