pugnacious33 - 6/10/2007 8:20 AMwhen all he had to do is ease into it, .......... Adrenaline must have been pumping so he just hit the throttle.

I've watched that video clip many times over these past few years and I've come to one conclusion........the skipper had the right idea IMO but his timing was off. To take the wave before it crested and broke would most certainly have been the best time to go over it, but his timing was just a bit off and he ended up taking it at the wave's worst time.
Sure wouldn't have wanted to been that guy up front!
