I enjoy watching someone , who is Good at what they do ; that was Fun !! :thumb:

Biggest wave i ever bin on with a surfboard was maybe 12' at Blacks, in San Diego Ca ; It's
a Left with a slight horseshoe bend in the middle, so all Ya had to do was aim straight, and
go fast !! Can't ever do that again, with fake legs. :(

This to me is kiteboarding in front of the big wave. The man is never on the face a any stage really. No critical wave riding. I hated this wave before this video and I hate it even more now

I don't think there's any sneaking doing on!. Its an angry monster charging at full speed screaming out "I'M GOING TO EAT YOU ALIVE YOU PUNY HUMAN".

I don't know if anybody has posted this yet, but here's Andrew Cotton seriously injuring himself at Nazare:

Yeah - it's an ugly wave. For the most part it seems impossible to get into a critical section of the wave without being crushed. That's what makes Pe'ahi such am amazing wave, in comparison.

Well done! Looks like what is need to ride this wave is a speed board rather than a surfboard :)
