Paige Hareb: be careful, girl

Paige Hareb escaped a very serious accident, yesterday, in Teahupoo, Tahiti.

As she was catching her first wave of the session, Brazilian Silvana Lima dropped in and forced Hareb to find the less dangerous way. Nevertheless, she had to duck dive in the shallow waters and got cut in the reef.

Teahupoo was kicking solid 6-foot waves. Then, Paige paddle back to the boat where she was assisted. Hareb and friends were shooting lifestyle photos for Billabong.

The 20-year-old Kiwi surfer can't walk and has one week to rest until the next five surfing contests.
