Cotton broke his back after a "split-second decision" that left him with a "dodgy [L2] vertebrae, but no complications." The British daredevil plans to heal quickly start rehab as soon as possible.

Funny, that looked like a snowmobile on snow with all that white water. On point with the topic however, the reason he broke his back was the sheer weight of his juevos. Surprised the board could even hold him up.

It looked to me like the jet ski rider heard him screaming when the jet ski bounced so he stopped and turned around. I have a herniated disc in my lower back. Anything that touches the spinal nerve is as the most pain you can ever experience. I cant even imagine a broken back and bouncing up and down.

When that stupendous wave crashes into the surfer from behind initially it tosses him about 30 feet in the air and dropped him down HARD like a big wet sack of cement. It's scary watching how easily the forces of nature can kick your teeth down your throat.

You have to imagine the “worst case scenario” before riding waves this big. If you are not willing to pay the price, don’t do it.

This poor man... when you surf and are up against waves like that you swim down and INTO them not away. You dive and swim like hell under and as fast as you can... if the water skier had skied out pass the wave break the surfer would of been fine....
I hope he is okay.

I think this ranks in the top ten of the worst wipeouts ever, documented or undocumented.  Huge wave, lip crushes with force, somehow he's blasted forward for more destruction, then caught in the impact zone and unable to escape more washing machine action and sucking of sea foam.  And, to top it off, it all happens in obviously nut-freezing conditions.  Sweet.  Baby.  Jesus.

You cant out run that,you need to face it. Same thing while surfing when a huge wave comes to you you take it head on(and depending on your board dive under it). It's a well known rule always face the wave. So prop to the jet ski driver. The one thing I could agree is the way they engaged the wave, i think they weren't in the right place to start the ride.

Stone W ok ill explain. They were wiped out from the ski suddenly stopping. Their momentum threw them AWAY FROM THE SKI. You see the way they were wiped was side ways because. It is a big wave that turns them over. It almost the only way for ski riders to fall of from their ski is when the ski tilts side ways. They were like crashing into a wall but its water the in water it is almost impossible that you are thrown away to the front. For you to be hit the ski. most of you are land dwellers that you see cars crashing to people .. It never the same on the water And FOR PEOPLE WHO SAID THE DRIVER WAS AN IDIOT FOR TURNING BACK TO THE WAVE is fcuking wrong and ignorant. You have to face the wave no matter what . If youre hit from behind your ski will topple over and your fucked up. Your engine will not work from the water that got in its a ruder nightmare. Srsly

Liam just because you haven't doesn't mean that others haven't or that it didn't happen in this case. I seriously doubt you've ever driven a jet ski in these conditions. Regardless, it appears that the wave broke his back here, although the jet ski rolling around near him could have been fatal.

Tyler D. Actually I’ve seen an interview with him and he straight up says it was the wave that broke his back. He felt the instant pain when he landed on his back and then got pummeled by the white wash. He said he could barely move because the pain was so bad. That was before they rescued him. It (the jet ski) may not have helped the situation but it definitely did not cause the break in his back. Hitting water at that speed/force is like hitting asphalt. Here’s one interview https://magicseaweed.com/news/exclusive-andrew-cotton-on-horror-nazare-wipeout/10578/ There’s also a cool interview on YouTube somewhere as well.

In the below symptoms the key word is "may"
"Depending on how severe your injury is, you may experience pain, difficulty walking, or be unable to move your arms or legs (paralysis). Many fractures heal with conservative treatment; however severe fractures may require surgery to realign the bones."

The below statement says it all...
“Did you bounce off the reef?”
“Nah, I didn’t even touch the reef. The lip broke my back.”
---John John Florence, broken by the wave, the very water, that made him famous.

Symptoms of a spinal fracture vary depending on the severity and location of the injury

I agree Oliver, that is a very strong second possibility. Or if he was injured by the wave, the jet ski could have added to his problems? As he was definitely in a position behind the ski to be hit by it, and maybe even its driver or both, Not Good?.

Christina Carrington As bad as that was, if he had turned right instead he could have been washed up onto the rocks. And that's the worst place to be in conditions like that. I doubt if he could have survived had he been pushed onto those rocks. That's why everyone turns left once they catch a wave to get to the channel and over the shoulder of the wave. But conditions like that are EXTREMELY unforgiving.

This dude was doomed from the start. He took off in the worst spot to surf a left. He wasn't even centerfold and you need to drop the tow line close to the shoulder. No way he could have beat the lip because he was surfing directly into it! I feel bad for the guy, that was a killer set.

Ronan Rogers what it looks like to me is either he compress or partial fractured his back on the wave or waves. Then with the jet ski wipe out damaged nerves or further broke it.

To the people comparing broke arms and sprains to a broken back. Just stop please. To the people saying the impact was the biggest so that’s what did it, also not always the answer. It could have damaged his back weakening it for the smaller but still heavy impacts later to cause the break.

Same principle of why you stabilize someones someone’s head after an impact or injury, it’s not only to protect the neck but if the spine or neck isn’t fully broken but weakened or partially fractured to cause further nerve or spinal damage.

That wave really did damage and he really needed to be isolated and treated, every impact following was the worst thing that could happen.

My thought as well. I can see him get the initial body slam but that U turn by the jetski driver into the foam flipped him over backwards onto Cotton .
But he spoke about it later and claims the injury occurred on the wipeout.

have you ever had a major slam doing any extreme sport??i have torn ligaments in my knees shoulders etc. and i was still able to walk for a while with my broken knee due to the adrenaline rush and not everytime someone "breaks" their back it doesn't mean paralysed right away.i saw a guy jumping a waterfall and landing on his back,he was able to swim to shore but still had get air lifted out into hospital due to back injuries too.

Ronan Rogers I wondered the same thing. Usually a broken back/spine means paralysis, yet he was able to move all his limbs to grab onto the JetSki and hold on to it. Makes you wonder what really happened.

incorrect, his back broke from the impact after he was launched into the air by the lip. His back was already broken by the time he went on the ski

He broke his L2 vertebra. Between 6 and 9 months to recover, I guess he must be ready now to try this monster again.

He's playing Black Jack with his 'one bite' at lifes apple. The Grim Reaper loves foolish arrogance. Makes a living off of ego jacked miscalculators.
