The owner of a surf school in California is under fire after pulling a female surfer’s leash at the Venice Pier.
Wagner Lima, the founder of Brazilian Surf Club, grabbed Danielle Lyons’ leg rope until she fell into the water. Lyons was riding a small right-hand wave under priority.
“Not only is what he did super dangerous – it’s assault. If I was a novice surfer, I could have knocked my teeth out. In all my years of surfing I’ve never been attacked unprovoked like this,” explained Danielle.
