Taking the easy way out into the lineup usually seems like a good idea, right? It’s way easier than paddling out and there’s something particularly satisfying about earning your position in the lineup without much work. However, for Miguel Blanco, this brilliant shortcut turned bad very quickly, as the ocean can be very unpredictable at times. Watch as Miguel dives headfirst into dry rocks after a poorly-timed entrance. “Final result: straight to the medical clinic,” Instagrammed Miguel following the incident. Although Miguel escaped with a few minor cuts and bruises, he’s probably wishing he had taken the longer way out.


Only the best. We promise.
