Have You Ever Gotten Stripped Naked And Had Your Leash Snapped In A Single Duckdive?

Peak humiliation (and JJF carves) in Nathan Florence’s latest video-log.

Nathan Florence’s Youtube. You know what you’re gonna get. Probably a bit of snarky humor, a dash of weightlifting, lots of paddling clips, and some world-class surfing.

This clip has most of that, with an M. Night Shamalayan twist. While John John and Nathan are busy dismantling massive Rockpiles like it’s 3-foot Lowers, an unfortunate man gets cleaned up by a set of certified honkin’ rompers.

We don’t see the actual moment that the Pacific Ocean decides to strip this man of his board, trunks, and dignity, but we do get to watch him floating haplessly in the shorepound, uncertain of his next move, while his lower torso does its best Free Willie impression..

He floats there for so long, in fact, that the lifeguards decide he needs to be rescued, and commence heroic action, to bring this man to safety. We can only imagine the conversation that went down when they got out to him.

As penance for his poorly timed duckdive, they wrap him loosely in two lifeguard floats.

The rest is history.

Oh and Nathan Florence does a Rockpiles hack to rival his brother, which is seriously saying something.
