"Right when I slammed, I just felt kind of a snap in my lower back, right on my spine.”
The Hawaiian-born brother of US surf Olympian John John Florence has posted a harrowing point-of-view angle of the twenty-foot wave that almost sent him straight to a quadriplegic ward.
Nathan Florence, a twenty-eight-year-old married powerlifter who runs both YouTube and Only Fans channels, tested his ability in the most malicious of conditions only two be rushed to hospital by his guy-pal Kai Lenny after a terrific wipeout.
“I got picked up and I fell through the barrel. I fell a lot longer than I thought,” said Florence. “After the initial impact, I got sucked up and fell again. As I was falling, I was pulling my vest. I just fell a lot farther than I thought and my body was in a weird position. I just slammed on my back on the bottom of the barrel, which is just hard water. Right when I slammed, I just felt kind of a snap in my lower back, right on my spine.”
The POV footage gives the viewer the most goddamnest feeling of being snapped in two by the hand of God.
“I know this video ends quite dramatically,” writes Florence. “I want you all to know that I am healing up and my back is feeling alot better I think I just got absolutely flexed!! Any way thanks for watching and what a way to start the new year with a BANG hahaha!”
