Coast Guard takes on giant surf in epic training session


What type of wave is so heavy that Shane Dorian and Albee Layer would name it "Blood Eagle"? The pair set out on the Scottish coast, searching the cold, gray waters of the North Atlantic for a ridable wave. What they found was a heavy slab wave off of an unnamed cliff. Inspired by a story from Albee, they decided an appropriate name would be "Blood Eagle", after a ceremonial offering.

The wave lived up to the story, as it dangerously broke on a rocky shelf. A session went off, with Albee and Shane pushing themselves and each other, capturing something truly special.
