Storm Ciara - Atlantic storm 3 in Storms & Severe Weather Discussion Posted February 9, 2020 · Edited February 9, 2020 by Bazray 8 minutes ago, Nick L said: I don't think that comparison is at all fair. Bungee jumping and sky diving is done under far more controlled conditions with risk assessments performed. I'd argue the chances of being killed by either of those are miniscule in comparison to going out in the sea in Force 11 winds and then expecting the emergency services to bail you out. Seeking adrenaline is one thing. Being a pillock is another. Well I do know somebody who got seriously injured from skydiving, that’s why I thought of it as an example, but yea, surfing in these conditions is asking for trouble, I agree. remember a few years ago in a Torquay, there was a pretty bad storm coinciding with a high tide, the waves where crashing over the wall. Some kids, decided it was fun to play chicken with the waves, one got caught and just escaped, didn’t learn the lesson though and carried on. some people are just a bit mad ?
