Nitecrawler -Lux Fixxins -
Almost drowned surfing in Mexico.
sorry, couldn't resist. LOL. :-)
Lol, no prob.
i was in mexico
i surface just as waves crashed on me
caugh in that cycle
started trying to get out
keep going further under
lost sight of beach
started getting tired, thirsty, hot.
almost gave up
though "I can't die in front of wife"
adrenaline kicked in
started litterally fighting the sea
lungs burning, tiring, can't see
getting super hard to surface and stay afloat
Hit super hard by wave
hit bottom of ocean
"holy shit, I'm near a beach"
eventually land in beach
incline super steep
as I climb beach keeps getting washed out from under me
waves keep pulling me back toward the ocean
fight up hill and finally grab hot ass dry sand
just a few feet more
collapse on burning hot beach
eventually I hear my wife screaming in the distance
she runs over to me "are you ok?"
"I just want water"
walked back to our camp.
Drank 5 bottles of water.
installed new tether and went back out there next day
