Noah Hill Doesn't Need No Stinking Femur

I have a deep appreciation for those who huck themselves off watery ledges -- Noa Deane, Matt Meola, John Florence, etc.

Like, are these guys not terrified of breaking their ankles and knees? How could that possibly be the case, given most of them have suffered serious bodily in the past? Stuff like that leaves not only physical, but also mental scars. 

Which brings me to Noah Hill. One year ago, the red-haired Hawaiian broke his femur attempting an air at Rocky Point. The femur, for those of you who don't follow pop cultural musings, is widely regarded as the strongest bone in the body. And breaking it fucking sucks. 

Noah was supposed to be dry-docked for six months but, thanks to a massive rehabilitation effort, was back in the water in three. Judging by the video above, which features some fun early-season swells on his home island of Maui, Noah is going bigger than ever before. I once nicked my chin with a razor which resulted in a lifetime beard commitment. Apparently the same logic doesn't apply to Noah with airs. Good on the kid.
