Tragically, the cruel concoction of hydrogen dioxide and sodium chloride wasn't smiling that day.

That honour was given to the dozen-or-so members of his entourage, who held back laughter as French struggled mightily to stay on his board.

If the first two waves he attempted to surf on were harsh, then the third was just plain mean.

The rapper failed to mount his neon pink steed, instead clinging-on for dear life as he was sent barrelling back towards the shore.
