Kai Rothman takes award for the worst wipeout of the day at the Eddie!! BRUTAL!

Well, what can we say that already hasn't been said.. The Eddie gave us some of the biggest waves we have seen in competition for many a year. But, with big waves come HUGE wipeouts, and there were a fair share on display during the heats o the 25th February. Arguably the biggest of the day came when Kala Alexander and Kai Rothman set off side by side on a bomb, only to collide on the lip leaving Rothman to cartwheel 40 feet down this monster.

You'll be glad to know Kai, a true waterman, brushed himself down and spent a good bit of time in the channel recovering before he got straight back in the line up! What a guy!!
