If you think fate is unpredictable, try tempting it. Koki Hendrawan maintains his line and his composure just inches away from a spinning prop that could spell the end. A few minutes later the guy in the boat was slammed by a set, capsized and dragged across the reef. Cameras and pride were both lost. Padang Padang can be the supreme teacher of the thin red line between confidence and arrogance. Step over it and you are gonna get tapped.
