Living The Dream

Adam Warchol Discusses the Wipeout Which has the Entire Big Wave Community Talking

Last week a huge swell hit Hawaii - bringing Pe’ahi to life again and there was a whole blockbuster crew in the lineup. There have obviously been several talking points about the last huge swell, but the main one involves 19-year-old Adam Warchol (Quatro / Goya Windsurfing), who suffered quite possibly the worst wipeout in windsurfing history after a 60 foot plus bomb landed on his head. Thankfully, the young gun survived unscathed and you can now hear him recount the experience in person @
