The Inertia

Shane Dorian has incredibly strong toes. If there’s one part of this video that stands out, it’s his drop at 1:05. If there are two parts, they are Dorian’s toe-tapping drop-in and the GoPro over-the-falls experience as the clip opens. Both give you a sense for how fast the water is moving out at Mavericks and the imminent danger of California’s most notorious big wave spot. Dorian took second at the 2014 Mavericks Invitational to South African Grant “Twiggy” Baker in daunting surf.
