Dave Wassel tows into massive wave, and John Duval drops in on him sans Jetski. Who is in the right?
Hip-hop artist Eminem once said that everybody needs a little controversy and we can’t entirely disagree. We’re all drawn to dissagreements. And in Surfing Magazine’s recent clip of Dave Wassel talking about his Tahitian bomb gone awry, we certainly see two sides. It’s surfer vs. bodyboarder. Tow vs. paddle. Local vs. guest. Wassel, the guest, was deeper, but only because he was whipped in. Duval, the local, dropped in and didn’t even come close to making it. And a wave like that could easily kill a man. Wassel’s take on the situation can be found here. If you’re really interested, strap on your reading spectacles and breeze through the comments — it’s a heated debate if we’ve ever seen one.
