Surprisingly, or rather, not so surprisingly, surfing takes a huge toll on your body. If you think about it, you’re straining and fighting against the water trying to stabilize yourself and not fall. When surfing in little baby waves, it’s not a very comfortable experience to get washed under the waves. These professional surfers decided to venture out and do what no one else has done before, and that is surfing the heaviest wave in the world.
It is not unusual trying to reach the peak of your sport. You naturally seek out higher opportunities to venture where barely anyone else has gone, even if it means putting your life at risk.
