Hawaiian surfer Dusty Payne suffered a horrendous wipeout at Pipeline's Backdoor, on the North Shore of Oahu, and nearly drowned.
Payne took off on just another four-foot inside wave at Backdoor but was not able to set his rail, slipped and went down.
According to surf photographer Keoki Saguibo, who was in the water taking pictures, Payne may have hit the reef with his head before getting pounded by four or five waves. But he didn't resurface, and his board was soon spotted floating unattended.

Nearly 30 big wave surfing pictures taken by surf photographer Frank Quirarte and infused on coated aluminum sheets will be on display at the Coastal Arts League Gallery in Half Moon Bay, California.
The exhibition "Mavericks: Heavy Metal" showcases some of the best and most iconic shots captured by Quirarte in the last two decades at the legendary North California surf break.
Metal printing is a new medium that allows the production of high definition images by the infusing dyes on aluminum plaques. The photos get vibrant colors and increased luminescence.

What happens when you're on the surf trip of your life and, suddenly, your van breaks down leaving you and your friends stranded in no man's land?
The picture could be real, but Spanish art collective Surf & Comics wants to bring that uncomfortable feel to the comic strips.
"A Distant Wave" hopes to become a long, high-quality PDF comic, so scriptwriter Maxi González and illustrator Tayfun Sezer have launched a crowdfunding campaign to drive the project to a successful completion.
