Did you check those sites? There's some great photos of guys towing into Jaws on foilboards and other stuff.
There's also an ad for a small compressed air bottle to carry with you so if you get held under by a mega wave you'll have something to breath, if it don't smash ya to a pulp on the reef that is.
