How to Survive the Biggest Wave

You’re on the hunt for the biggest, raddest wave imaginable. You know that the world record for the largest wave ever surfed was set by Rodrigo Koxa in 2017 when he successfully rode a 24 meter (80 ft) wave at Nazaré. And you want to go ever bigger. But water is heavy. A 10 meter (33 ft) wave with a 20 meter (66 ft) wide lip weighs 410000 kilograms (410 tonnes). If you wipeout, the equivalent weight of four Blue Whales would come crashing down on you.
