Mark Healey's Epic Backhand Tube

"If he would have made it, that would have been one of the best backhand barrels ever at Jaws." Shane Dorian is not one for hyperbole, so when he made that comment from the webcast booth after Mark Healey's epic backhand tube you know you've witnessed something special. Healey knifed perfectly into a wedging Pe'ahi monster, drew a perfect line, pulled up into a gaping tube only to get bucked off by a huge rib running up the face of the wave. No harm, no foul for Healey however, he still advanced into tomorrow's Semifinals.
