Aaron Gold suffered a massive wipeout and nearly drowned at Cloudbreak, Fiji. Like many others at Cloudbreak, Gold knew he was surfing a large swell. The Third Reef was pumping, and the 2016 WSL Paddle of the Year winner wanted his share of stoke. The 34-year-old big wave surfer took off on a big wave, wiped out, and suddenly, he was found floating lifeless by Uri Kurop, who was on a jet ski. Gold was foaming at the mouth, and he was administered intensive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
