GoPro Catches The Most Cringe-Worthy Surf Wipeout We've Ever Seen

GoPros are responsible for some incredible moments -- an eagle soaring through the French Alps, goofy dog selfies, and even a base jumper's 127,852 foot space dive -- but it was about time they gave us an epic fail too.

A warning for anyone who wants to take a selfie while surfing: make sure there's absolutely no one on the wave before dropping in.

And in defense of the lady who was sucker punched by the surfboard (note: she is reportedly OK), that dude could have totally shifted his board the other way instead of shooting it right at her head.
