Gerard Butler Cheats Death After Surfing Scare

Action hero Gerard Butler was nearly taken down for out for good this weekend when things went awry while surfing. The actor was filming a scene for his upcoming Of Men and Mavericks in California’s Half Moon Bay when a dangerous surf break knocked him off his board and pinned him underwater. The Beach Boys never warned us about this! Gerard was dragged across the rocky sea floor before a jet-ski riding patrol-man was able to rescue him.

It could have been a scary case of art imitating life, as Of Men and Mavericks chronicles the story of sufer Jay Moriarty, who died at sea in 2001. But luckily Gerard escaped the same fate, and was released from the hospital with no serious injuries. Gerard’s surf coach Zach Wormhoudt says that the waves were a lot to handle, and not just for the rookie! “It was intense for myself, and I’ve been through a lot out there,” he admitted to the Associated Press. Don’t back down from that wave, Gerard!

Lindsay Lohan Kinda-Sorta-Almost Surfs


We can’t actually say that these are pics of Lindsay Lohan surfing, because she really only gets up on one knee. But still, that’s a hell of a lot closer than we’ll ever get to hangin’ ten, so we’ll give her some serious props. The stunt is actually for a photoshoot, but she fills out a wetsuit nicely as she tackles the waves on the beaches of Malibu. It’s definitely a change of direction from Lilo’s gruesome Tyler Sheild’s shoot that hit the streets yesterday. Check out more of Lindsay’s surfin’ safari in the gallery below!

Brody Jenner Impresses The Nation’s Bros With Surfing Injury

And now a word from the guy who puts the “bro” in Brody. Honorary Kardashian Brody Jenner has been hanging ten on an Indonesian surf trip for the past few days, but apparently he needs a little more practice. The reality star tweeted a truly nasty pic of his banged up foot following a heavy duty wipe-out today. We’re not sure why he wanted to broadcast the fact that he sorta sucks at surfing, but bros all over the world air-drum-solo’ed to a Dispatch song in approval.  “One of the sickest waves of my life,” Brody gushed via Twitter, “No surfing today. My foot is DESTROYED! Check it!”  He was taken to a local hospital specializing in rad injuries, where he was diagnosed with a cut foot and a case of Extremeocity. His foot will heal, but sadly he is expected to remain somewhat of a douche for the rest of his life. Stay strong, brah.
