It seems almost impossible to caption a video like the one above – something so intense, so impressive, so jaw-dropping – it speaks for itself.

All that's left to say is how none of it would have been possible without the sheer guts and grit that each competitor showed throughout the two days of Red Bull Cape Fear 2016.

 

As one of the commentators says of Richie Vaculik... they "just wouldn't give up". Pound for pound, barrel for barrel, it was a day that will go down in surfing history.

Relive it, over and over.
