Ricardo Dos Santos is probably wishing he didn’t pick this wave at Mexico’s famous Puerto Escondido last week. But when word gets out that the waves are this good, it’s hard to keep the daredevils away.
They showed up in their droves desperate to catch a piece of the action, but Dos Santos got more than he bargained for. As soon as he takes off, Dos Santos instantly tries to eject. He exits stage left, only to find himself in real trouble as the wave comes down and pounds him beneath the surface.
When Puerto fires it’s a prime location for wipeouts. Congratulations Ricardo, you’re heavy fall has been nominated in the wipeout of the year category at the 2015 XXL Global Big Wave Awards.
