When Da Wave Breaks Here, Don’t Be There….

…..Or you’re gonna get drilled. But like we all already know, nobody listens to Turtle. Had 23 yr. old Jacob Cockle of Cornwall, England taken the advice of the legendary character from the 1987 epic North Shore, he would have been far away from where he was when he got absolutely drilled during a recent session.

Jacob was out surfing while his older brother Joe was taking pictures from the beach. Jacob ended up being caught inside and up against a seawall made of stone, and his timing couldn’t have been any worse. ‘I couldn’t believe it, I was stuck by the pier and I saw this huge wave rear up right in front of me. It was just massive and there was no escape, I thought that was it, that I was in way over my head,” said Jacob. “The wave was so powerful that I was underwater for ages but eventually I managed to swim in to the beach.” Considering the size of the wave and the position Mr. Cockle found himself in, he was unbelievably lucky he was able to swim anywhere at all.Moral of the story? When da wave breaks here….

Don’t be there, or you’re gonna get drilled!
