    Viscious idiots laughing. I surf in SC and see those types all of the time. Karma will get them! Innocent people who didn't know trusted the event organizers. No one should EVER laugh when people get hurt. Mean nasty spiritless ghosts.

  39. Jim Harris says:

    Moonstone Beach in Cambria,Ca. is nicknamed "Body Snatchers" because unsuspecting flatlanders get caught by surges from big sets of waves. It often is as calm as a lake for 30- 45 minutes, then 8-12 big waves hit and clean the beach like a tsunami.

  40. F Stanz says:

    Always good to have a bunch of PA & other electronic gear next to a giant body of water with everyone walking around barefoot.

  41. spunkweed69 says:

  68. Jeff H says:

    Good place to run a metal detector over, later on.

  69. Rod Templar says:

    Those jackasses were told not to stand there. Some wet back bitch broke her leg and sued the city of HMB.

  70. Belmont79 says:

  74. Brylen Pimentel says:

    Mini tsunami in 2010

  75. Flower says:

    Some people are so damned ignorant. That wave was strong enough to kill someone if it rammed them into metal. Jesus some morons will laugh at anything.  I was concerned and they're laughing. Idiots. Bet they wouldn't laugh if it happened to them. I am astounded at the stupidity of some human beings. Laughing and clapping..OMG!!! Retards.

  76. DLSea Music says:

    Welp… They were told several times not to do that. If anyone got seriously hurt, that'd suck… but it's their own fault!

  77. Rieksfier says:

    Stanley Roberts brought me here.

  78. Leif Gw Persson says:

    IT is tsunami

  79. Lydia Whetstone says:

    I don't care what warnings were given out, you don't laugh at people getting hurt, unless you're sick in the head or a sadist. You tell a 6 year old not to get up on a table, she does it anyways, falls and breaks a leg or hits her head and is knocked out with blood pouring from her head, are you going to just laugh at her and walk away?

  80. oscillatine says:

    I am afraid not to understand what a surf contest exactly is, in this case. People have to stay on a shore and wait for a huge wave to surf on ?

  81. PLAYERJLC says:

    Idiots

  82. Sandra Bonner says:

    d00d… all they wanted was a tasty wave and some cool bud!

  83. sdq sdq says:

    سبحان الله. يصفقون للخطر و يضحكون بدلا من ان يقشعروا و من معجزة الله. مجانين و بي امتياز

  85. Elbert Derf says:

    none of you assholes have said anything about the video…

  86. TRAP F says:

    Stupid human

  87. Keith Purdue says:

    Unfortunately, few surfers study the floor around there. As a result, several die every year. When l surfed, there were only a couple dozen of us and the crowds were small. No big resorts, no huge crowds. And to go out you have to be towed. The waves have too much force to paddle -out.

  88. Try Thinking For a change says:

    typical fools, laughing while people may have been injured. USA USA USA

  89. ryan thesurfman says:

    how many people got hurt that day…..lucky nothing else happened,hoped they learn something on that day, won't be so lucky next time.
