We’ve been hearing that Chris Ward had himself a scary weekend. According to Azhiaziam.com and a blog from TheTributeNews.com, Wardo and his girlfriend headed out of Morro Bay in a 13-foot Sea Pro skiff to post up at an outer break to surf on Saturday, February 13th. Apparently their motor had died and were stuck out at sea, with now 25-foot sets closing out the harbor entrance. A Coast Guard cutter started towing them in when a set flipped Wardo’s skiff, throwing him and his girlfriend from the boat, and then proceeded to flip the Coast Guard boat. Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.
We’re not entirely sure if this was Wardo or not, but this incident did happen. Check out more about it at the following links:
