Pete Hodgson shares a vital warning that most do not heed....

"Oh yea, this one was fun to uncover and look at this morning. I'm supposed to stay off my feet a week to let this heal properly. Let this be a lesson sun n' surf fans. 4 cancers taken out in two months. This one over my Achilles tendon is from not putting sun screen on the back of your legs all the way to your ankles (not like I used sun screen back when I got all this) ..BUT YOU KIDS SURE SHOULD!! USE YOUR SCREEN!!!!!!! This could have been on my face, yikes! Sorry if you were eating when you saw this".

A personal and heavy surf story by Garrett McNamara

Back in the day Getting ready for #Nazare This was one of the biggest waves I've ever encountered. It was at Mavericks the day Suzan Casey came to visit for her book the wave. Getting out was virtually impossible due to fog thick as pea sup.
After waiting a while @john_john_florence and I finally got the balls to navigate our way out as we got to the line up the sky parted it was weird a little hole only over the line up you couldn't see out and you couldn't see in but the line up was clear. As we got closer a monster came in and Flee was on it he barely made it to the bottom and then just fell back the monster exploded on him he came out of the explosion laying back some how stood up and made it. @john_john_florence said "that gave me the shivers".
