The drop: easy, boy, easy...

Drop-ins, close outs, vertical rides, drop knee madness and wipeouts. Bodyboarders are known for taking the gnarliest drops in the world of wave riding. Mike Stewart keeps saying bodyboarding is the sport that takes wave riding to its limits. He's right.

Now, SurferToday.com brings you the proof of concept idealized by the legendary bodyboarder. Impossible waves are always a defying test, even if you think that the probability of escaping a dangerous wipeout is really low.

Check, for example, "The Wedge," a frightening surf spot located in Newport Beach, California. Only experienced and local bodyboarders can ride this wave on big days. The drop is so fast and unpredictable that everything can happen in-between. Take a look at the radical drops.

Sky News, the British news TV station, has compiled an impressive collection of videos taken from big wave bodyboarding, where riders even defy their own death.

Now, add a shallow reef, heavy wave lips, great white sharks and monstrous waves. The result is the deadly wave of "Cyclops," located in Australia. If you think you're ready to surf it, think twice.

In San Lorenzo Beach, Gijon, Spain, there are bodyboarders who risk severe injuries chasing a scary backwash. Of course, wipeouts are frequent as you can confirm.

The Nazaré Special Edition, in Portugal, is one of the best big wave bodyboarding contests in the world. Waves are always simply super huge. How big? Take a look.

In Spain, you saw how fun it can get with a backwash. Well, but there's one dude that won't forget this jump. If you prefer good wipeouts, check these incredible samples.

So, whether you're testing your bodyboarding limits or simply enjoying the wipeout of your life, never forget you're always going to be admired for challenging spirit. Like this girl that got barreled after a vertical wipeout.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
