You gotta pay to play, it’s an adage that’s especially true for surfers. As soon as you start surfing you’ll find yourself with fin gashes, leash burns, lumps, bruises, and beat downs on the regular. No matter how good you get, no matter how many hours you put in, you’ll always pay these dues. Jordy Lawler certainly paid his. He takes a heavy beating in Samoa that tears him up, but he’s back in the water and ripping as soon as he’s stitched up (surfermag.com).
