♪ ♪

As the wave
starts sucking up,

sucking up, sucking up,

there's this frozen moment
where it's drawing me up

like a rollercoaster.

Like, clink, clink,
clink, clink.



I could just see
the entire scene.

It was like I was higher
than the cliff,

and I could see
the cliff there

with all the people.

Everyone's watching this.

I feel the shadow of the lip

coming up over the back,
right?

And I put my arm out like this
to break my fall...

and then I fall.

♪ ♪

In that moment,

the violence
knocked me into submission.

Just complete chaos...

spinning, cartwheels,
front flips, back flips.



I don't know
which way is up at all.

I'm going deeper, deeper.
Seems like forever.

And then... shh.

Goes quiet.

In that present moment,

I went through my whole
life review journey

underwater.

[somber music]

It was my whole entire life
in that moment.

- Look at him.
- Gosh.

Look at him.

Like, my whole life
is there in the water.

I mean, it felt
like five minutes went by

before the guys on the beach
said that they could spot him

way up north
in the shore break.

I come up one time,
I see Alemao.

He's coming, I'm like,
"Oh, my God, I'm saved.

Thank God."

I'm startin' to sense

something hurts in my arm,
you know?

[Jet Ski drones]
Grabs my hand,

hurts so bad I go, "Aaah!"

[muffled yelling]

When I tried to grab him,

he starts to pale.
He say, "No, no, no."

So I planned.
I go to the beach.

And I swim back

and then run to ask for him.

He was alive.

Just... that was all
that I was hoping for.

You're hurt.
You need support.

Garrett, can you give me
an update?

one day I will miss her.

What I didn't expect
is to miss her

on the biggest day,
on the biggest wave,

on the biggest fall
of her life.

For sure.
Worst experience in Nazaré.

it was, like,
first, having a rest,

but then going
back to the water

to surf a wave again.

So we did that with Tony.

It's kind of breaking the ice,

What am I seeking, you know?

What's the need?
Is that worth the risk?

You know,
it's not even the injury.

Forget the injury.
It's the fact that, you know,

he almost died

That's the real trauma to me.

He didn't know
if anybody was gonna save him.

He didn't know if he was gonna
make it to the beach.

Most people
would probably have died.

What an experience.

I wasn't sure
if I could survive it.

I passed the first heat."

Then semifinals...

With that wave,
I managed to stay second.

And then I realized...
I was like,

I was in the last heat.

I had, like,
a really good drop,

a really good turn...

I finished the wave.

Someone went to pick me up.

He just told me,
"You're first."

And I was like, "What?"

Look. Super, super small

Barrel wanted me
to tow him in Nazaré

for a while now.

I don't know if I was pushing,

but I was definitely
encouraging him to go.

Dad, I don't have
to catch a wave.

If you don't want to,
you don't have to.

I knew it was perfect size.

I knew everything
was just right.

And I knew
it was the day to take him.

Here you go. Right here.

[surfboard thuds]

It was so cute.

He jumps in the water.

And right when he touches
the water,

he's like...
"[vocalizes] It's cold."

Cold.

It's cold out here.

Garrett's in a good place.

I'm feeling like he's
really content more than ever.

Like, he has said
he's content before,

but it wasn't real.

Now it think
he's really settling in

to being a super present dad
and husband.

'Sup?

Am I okay?

Yeah, I'm okay. Are you okay?

CJ's figuring things out.

Pretty good, pretty good.

Pretty good. Aaah.

That was the most I've worked
my bicep in weeks.

I think if I hadn't taken
this legendary pounding,

I don't know that I would have

earned the respect of the club.

I may have still been
Garrett's brother-in-law.

And I feel
like now I'm CJ Macias.

I realized that I get

the same heart pumping
and nervousness

for some other things,

such as, like,
having the conversation

with a loved one
that I need to have with them,

before gathering together
a group of kids who are...

who knows what they're gonna
be like, you know?

If I can be pushing
and expanding myself

in these ways
that isn't risking my life,

I'm receiving
this growth and development,

and then it's not as limited
to surfing.

I like my life.

And even though
I still experience

a lot of these turmoils,

and life is so sad sometimes,
and all these things happen,

it's beautiful too, right?

My kiss?
[gasps]

- Aw.
- Garrett's been sensitive

to CJ's injury
and not being pushy

or even pushing.

But he has asked him
a few times

if he was gonna go back
to Nazaré.

Garrett may be
living vicariously

- through Barrel and I.
- Everybody ready?

And we live vicariously
through him.

Two, three.

Oh, my goodness.

I'm pretty content
on the land these days.

But then when I get
back in the water,

I'm like, "How could I not
be longing for this

all day, every day?"

When we sat down to write
our goals for this next year,

at the top of the list,
his goal is to be

in the best shape
of his life by 55.

He's trying to say
it's so that he can be

helpful for me and the kids,
but I am pretty sure

it's so that he can still surf

the biggest wave in the world.
[chuckles]

I'm doin' my best to reverse
the clock right now.

My neck's perfect.

My back is perf...my...
yeah, everything...

little pain in this shoulder,
but it's not bad.

I just wanna take Barrel

to all these
good little waves,

and if big ones show up, amazing.

I got one.

Got one! Got one!

I mean, I wanna be able
to get Barrel

till I'm 105 with Barrel.

All right.
We're gonna let him go.

He's not big enough, 'kay?

- He is small.
- Give him a kiss?
