Watch: Surfer Rides the Most Dangerous Wave in the World

Sunday June 1st, 2014

In 2012, surfer Ryan Hipwood almost lost his life at "The Right" in Western Australia, one of the most popular and dangerous surf spots in the world.

Recently, Hipwood decided to test fate once again. "The last time I surfed this, I thought I was gone," he says, before tackling the same wave that nearly killed him two years earlier. Thankfully, this time he comes out unscathed.

You can check out his full ride in the video above.
