Haley was not the first to SUP Mavericks (that honor goes to board designer Lyle Carlson).  Haley has been the dominant SUP'r at Mavericks going into his 2nd decade of over performance. 

He texts me pictures like this and then jokes about the situation and the beating:

Beasho Text : "Did you survive that?  Sorry..... why are you falling.  The board is well trimmed."

Haley: "Some guy got in my way in the drop
            I had to avoid him or run him over
            Which resulted in the board skipping sideways
            I got control of the board skipping sideways
            Which resulted in my foot being off-center on the rail
            The Avoidance resulted in an airdrop
            I landed the AirDrop
            When the board sped up I fell backwards when I hit a piece of chop
            It was like a chain reaction
            Three times I was like “yeah I pulled it” "


This is a view of what 'winning' three times looks like for Haley.

When not getting run over by a 40 footer this is what a ride looks like from above.

Holy buckets, I guess that's what Jeff Clark means about pulling into the pit.

Is this "Crow" Haley who made my hand tied big wave waist leashes?

Those were impressive drops.

The guys on the rescue jet skis looked to be in no hurry to go in and see if he was ok.

Cheers

Haley is awesome.  Has me thinking of a cat with 900 lives.

No.  Although we all wear the Crow Haley leashes.  You can see the 20 foot length of leash in the picture.

This is Haley Fiske

Beasho thanks for sharing.  Absolutely Amazing. 
What size board is Haley riding?  The wave almost makes the board look too small.
Does Haley make his own 20 ft leash, or does he have it custom made?  A 20' leash is on my wish list.  Love my Crow Haley waist leash, thanks for the recommendation.
