Man who boogie boarded down Huka Falls reappears online on massive wave in Bali


The boogie boarder who was famously caught riding the Huka Falls has now appeared riding the huge waves in Bali, on a boogie board of course!

Porirua man Hayley Patuwai has been recorded in a Youtube video (above) by the Surfers of Bali, bodyboarding across a massive wave unassisted at Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia, on July 25.

Patuwai – who calls himself Dr Bubbles – first captured attention when a video of him going over the Huka Falls near Taupo on a boogie board in 2016 later went viral.

“I knew I could handle it. People might ask why I didn’t wear safety apparatus, but that works against the water.”
