Investigation of Peter Davi's death

From time to time we receive press releases and snippets of info and this one looked as though it was worth sharing. Its a magazine article focused upon big wave riders and the tragic death of one of the tribe, Peter Davi, who was sadly lost at Ghost tree last year....heres the words from "Mens Journal"

"When monster cyclone-fueled surf hit the Pacific in December of 2007, fearless big wave riders like Peter Davi flocked to Ghost Tree, the infamous remote corner of a rock-strewn shoreline in California also called Pescadero Point .The March issue of Men's Journal (on sale now) delves deeper into the tragic story of Davi's last wave, talking to the key people that were there that fateful day.

he magazine a also talks to Laird Hamilton, who recounts his rescue of friend Brett Lickle in the same deadly surf in Hawaii that threatened to take Lickle's life. Even as a naked Hamilton swam away from his bleeding friend through deadly surf to reach the overturned Jet Ski that would narrowly save them both, he never questioned his decision. "When I see giant surf, " Hamilton tells
Men's Journal , "it's not like Should I go? It's automatic."
