Big Wave Surfer Francisco Porcella Survives a Mavericks Monster

We're throwing it back to a day in 2021 when Mavericks was breaking big. Francisco Porcella was one of the brave souls who paddled out this day, and he almost paid a dear price for it. Luckily, he was able to ride this bad decision out-- on his butt, no less! You could probably find Francisco on the beach cleaning out his wetsuit after this one. We're just glad he made it out unscathed!
