We have just received photos of a surfer almost drowning another in a surf rage incident up the West Coast the day before New Year's Eve. Witnesses say it was gnarly.
A recent near-drowning took place at a left pointbreak up the West Coast the day before New Year’s Eve. An anonymous reader sent in these photos showing a surfer gripping another in a neck lock and repeatedly dunking him in the water until he was on the verge of passing out.
‘The guy could easily have died. Luckily another guy intervened, and he let go. It was homicidal. The bald guy in the photo said he would kill his victim’s family, but swiftly departed the beach after the incident,’ said the reader, who said the victim did not want to press charges because he was afraid of reprisals.
