'Caught inside' is what surfers say when they are stuck in front of breaking waves. In normal conditions, that means lots of paddling, a few more duck-dives and heavy breathing. For these surfers at Jaws, off the coast of Maui, Hawaii, it means ditching your board and swimming underwater like all fuck. Or for one guy on the right of the shot, literally diving off your board and hoping you can survive a minute or so in a three-story washing machine.
The epic scene was caught by Giora Koren, who must have been pretty psyched he was sitting on a boat.
