Watch: Von Froth “My Worst Wipeouts”


If you play in Nic’s playground you’re going to cop a beating once in a while.

It’s just a percentage game. Eventually you’re going to pay the piper.

But we had no idea that our Portuguese pal had a sadistic side to him and actually enjoys the punishment!

In his words.

“Some people see wiping out as something negative, like some sort of fail. I thrive for wipeouts! When you’re wiping out, it’s a sign you are pushing your boundaries, your pushing that line of what is doable and what is not. Here are my worst wipeouts of the last 10 years, they sure hurt, but I’m still here to tell the tale. Enjoy!”

See, a little bit psycho.

But aren’t all big wave hellmen?
