“Hold me beer.”

Pro surfer Mikey Wright is being hailed a hero after he rescued a woman from drowning in Hawaii. Enjoying a cold beer on an Oahu patio, Mikey begins filming the waves when he notices a women being dragged out to sea in the rip current.

When it becomes clear that she is in big trouble, Mikey hands over the camera to a friend, hops the railing down to the beach, and rushes in to rescue her.

He eventually got her to shore, but not before taking a beating in the waves.

Not all heroes wears capes… but some have mullets.
