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.”
