Surfing Named Among Most Dangerous Sports In The World
According to a post on foxsports.com surfing was named as the fifth most dangerous sports in the world. The article said, "You can break bones, get caught in a rip tide, be taken out by other riders, be taken out by your own board, drown, be attacked by marine life, even drown and then be attacked by marine life."
Typical hogwash from a mainstream publication. But, if it prevents a bunch of yahoos from clogging the lineup we're all for it. Surfing was bracketed in the rankings by rugby (#6) and heli-skiing (#4). Making #1 on the list was BASE jumping.
