If you like seeing guys shred on boogie-boards, this video is not for you. If, on the other hand, you like seeing guys in wigs get absolutely pounded by some raw ocean energy, click play. Tee hee.
Think of it as an experiment in hydrodynamics. Will, for instance, an inflatable dolphin have a greater or lesser drag coefficient than, say, a foam surfboard that's been broken in half? How would we know the answers to such mysteries without scientific testing like this? Really, though, it's just kinda fun watching these guys (who are all actually excellent surfers) get completely annihilated by some vicious shorebreak. Knocks the wind out of me just looking.
