Shane Dorian dissects his Puerto air-drop.
July 5 was a special day for Shane Dorian. The mad charger was down in Mexico surfing mountains at Puerto Escondido when this wave presented the lineup. Most men would be paddling for the horizon but Dorian is not like most men. He stroked into it - late - air dropped, somehow regathering and packed himself into this beast. If the drop itself wasn't gnarly enough he was spat out of the thing with the force of a fire hose. This wave and Dorian's account will feature in an upcoming ESPN series, Big Wave Hellmen.
