Watch This Surfer Nail a One-of-a-Kind Wave at Skeleton Bay
Koa Smith hung ten through an unheard of eight barrels.
Eight barrels. Two minutes. One wave.
Those are the stats surfer Koa Smith recorded on a recent ride he took for nearly a mile at Skeleton Bay.
And, better than the stats, is the view.
To help capture everything the 23-year-old Smith experienced while riding his one-of-a-kind wave, videographer Chris Rogers filmed the entire ride using a drone as well as a GoPro attached to Smith.
The videos are worth a thousand words.
That being said, Smith did offer a few of his own on the gnarly ride.
“I’d like to think that everything I’ve done my whole life led up to that moment,” he said. “There was a point where I was at four barrels and I was already like, ’This is amazing,’ It looked like the wave was over, but it formed again. I figured, the drone’s there, I might as well stay on. And I was like, ‘Whoa!’ This went from a good wave to like a life-changing wave.”
