The unwritten rules of surfing are a great equalizer. They care not about fame, fortune, or looks. Disrespect them, and you face the consequences.
That’s the very lesson Adam Sandler learned recently after committing an etiquette faux pas in Malibu – a story which he recounted in vivid detail on Conan.
After seeing a bearded truck driver coming down the line, he decided to go anyway. “And I swear to God, I feel on my ass two soft hands,” says Sandler, “Then he just takes me and throws me.”
Don’t worry, Adam. Happens to everybody.
