Bodyboarder takes time to reflect and catch his breath.
While walking on the Huntington Beach Pier, I noticed this bodyboarder take a big hit from a wave. The surf was rough, there were many surfers and a few bodyboarders out, but this guy took a good tumble.
I watched him walk back in from the surf and pause a moment. He must have swallowed some sea water as the waves tumbled him around. I say this because vomited then stood there for a moment, I’m assuming assessing the situation. Being too far out and up on the pier to ask him if he was alright I waited to see his condition. He looked ok after a few moments, soon after I took this photo he walked away as if nothing had happened, I’m assuming back home.
