Surfing and surfers are cool has hell -- we all know that.

The sport has exploded over the last few years, with experts estimating surf culture is with a whopping $6.3 billion in the US alone.

There are 35 million surfers around the world, and while we are sure they are all a bunch of gnarly bros and Gidgets, you may want to think twice about becoming one.

Yes, surfing is awesome, an amazing workout and the best way to pick up chicks, but it's also hella dangerous. If you need proof, just watch this video of Taz Knight, a British pro surfer, absolutely eat it while surfing Puerto Escondido.

His response to getting pummeled says it all,

Holy f*ck.
