Last Sunday we got to the beach around 11AM, and it was high tide. Waves were barely breaking with 2-3 ft sets coming through. Around 12:30 a good set of 3 or 4 waves barreled all the way to the channel and we decide to go out and snap some shots . A few minutes later some 8 footers were coming through producing what Padang is known for… Wide and heavy barrels. Check the photos and leave your comments.

While you shouldn’t let incidences like the above scare you, we thought it prudent to have a look at the various setbacks endured by some of our favourite surfing stars, how they recovered and what (not) to do if faced with a similar situation.
