Taz Knight: surviving a big wave set at Todos Santos

British-Australian pro surfer Taz Knight narrowly escaped serious problems after getting caught inside at Todos Santos, in Mexico.

When Tasman Knight passed the Mexican border, he had a destination: Salsipuedes, a surf spot located in the World Surfing Reserve of Todos Santos Bay. After checking the local conditions, Knight paddled out at San Miguel Bay, warming up for a bigger day.

Next goal: Todos Santos. The small town is home to one of the heaviest barreling waves in the world. The swell was pumping 25-foot sets. With its dangerous rip tides, you don't want to get caught inside at Todos, the Mexican Pipeline.

Unfortunately, Taz Knight ate the power of the Mexican beast. Not one, not two, not three... Six impossible duck dives. But his lungs were fit to surf. Luckily.

"How not to surf Todos Santos. I was unfortunate enough to get probably the biggest set of the day on the head. Only 25-foot or so, but with the power of the Pacific behind her, she sure can throw a punch," expressed Knight.

Now, time remember those classic big wave surfing rules: never paddle for the first wave of the set; if you do so, ride it to the beach and grab a nice cold beer.
