Wave of bravado?

Saturday, there was this big surfing competition in California. They hastily organize it every time the waves are forecast to be particularly ferocious.

Spectators gather on a jetty and the rocks to watch, despite signs that warn people not to do so because there are sometimes rogue waves.

So the inevitable happens:

Several people were injured, none killed.
I guess the signs weren’t there for decoration.

Interesting when an emergency strikes, some people don’t grasp how bad it is. You hear a mix of screams and laughter as the wave strikes. Listen during this other video from CNN:
