brettbarley I didn't think I'd be able to get a #FailFriday out today, because I was surfing (attempting) all day long

But, me being me, I ate lunch and watched the waves during what ended up being the best part of the day... (Insert Homer Simpson "Doh!") So here's a photo I snapped while I was watching... #Failing

  •   maxkrump Dood!!! Woulda jumped in there lunch half eaten you can always eat after 2w
  •   brettbarley @maxkrump tide had been too low. So I was waiting for it to come in, and wanted to wait so I could surf till dark. Bad call. Got worse before dark. #DontWait 2w

brettbarley #TBT to this shot from @nate_smith_photo of Hawaii 2009... It was a Pipeline day, not necessarily cause of the swell, but because Backdoor and OTW were covered in shallow sand, and all Closeouts and dangerous backwash

@tothfroth and I had been sitting at "Aints" all morning, and easily the best set of the day came right to us, but it was a Right... A wide Backdoor wave that had some girth and good shape, but neither of us knew whether or not to go since not one right had been makeable all day

It was my turn, and honestly I didn't want it cause of all the sand, but after waiting until the last second, I whipped around and tried to get under it, because it looked too good to let go by. I didn't want to come in afterwards and have people questioning why neither of us went, and then tell me it was the wave of the day

Unfortunately, I had waited too long to start paddling & my fins went free, kicking out towards the beach as I airdropped down, and here is the shot of me hitting the eject button

I was later informed that it barreled all the way through OTW and spit out the other side of the reef, just perfect. I was told it WAS the wave of the day, maybe even wave of the winter, had I made it

I'll never know cause I've never seen a clip of the whole wave.... But I'm stoked I at least didn't let it go by. Just wish I would have paddled a second sooner. #SplitDecisions
