I grew up in Hawaii, and since I lived near the beach, it was fairly common to go surfing after school.
Well...everyone else would surf. I mostly just got bounced around in the shore break.
But one day as I was riding towards shore, a cross-current wave sideswiped my board and tossed me into the air. I did some sort of flip and – inexplicably – landed, feet first, unscathed, back on my board like nothing had happened.
I almost wouldn’t believe it was true myself, except that my friend, Matt, witnessed it.
It was crazy.
And quite frankly, it’s statistically impossible to ever happen again (especially since I don’t surf anymore).
You know what else is statistically improbable?
