Lesson: Use extra care when riding the biggest wave ever. 

I always find it funny when people say, "It's only water." 

Yeah, that's a strange phrase since water can kill.

I think most people know water can kill through drowning, but if you've never been out in surf like that, people don't realize the force can bludgeon you unconscious or break bones.  

You're right, breaking bones is not something most people realize water can do.

It's hard to imagine force that powerful.
