Rob Machado might not win the Honda U.S. Open of Surfing, but on Friday he achieved something few others in the star-studded field will achieve: immortality.

When he was just 19 or 20, Dana Brown recalls, he set out to conquer Hawaii's famed "Pipeline" and its monster waves that beckon thrill-seeking surfers from around the world. He was lucky to make it out alive. "I made the first wave, so I became a little cocky," said Brown, now 43. "The next wave, I take off, free-fall, land, and my trunks blow right off my body because I hit with such force. I tumble around and I'm thinking, 'I'm naked and I'm going to drown.'

"Arms. Arms are good." Tim Pearce seized hold of the thought. He was in a cramped hospital waiting area shortly before midnight on a Saturday in June 2006.
