I've never seen waves this big break with such long hollow barrels. It's like a giant sized pipeline. I think because Jaws has gotten so well known it's lost the mythical allure it once had to places like Nazare and Cortes Bank. Nazare definitely gets bigger but those waves seem to break in wedges and anyone who rides it has to usually out run the lip then kick off the shoulder (or just kick out to the shoulder before it breaks) No one ever seems to get pitted in any nice long barrels there. Despite the immense size it actually doesn't really seem like a wave that would be all that enjoyable to surf. More like a place you go to catch one huge wave, film it, then send it to Billabong for XXL ride of the year. Now Mullaghmore in Ireland gets some huge sick barrels. Its like a colder gnarlier version of Cloudbreak on a really big day.

Love how the guy on the third ski comes in all "for christ sake, this is how you rescue…"

Standor Shandor says:

Has anyone ever been killed by a rescue jet ski? You finally come up with maybe a second's worth of air left and WHAM!, end of story.

Sorry North is the right hander, South the left hander….. typo mistake

Nick Trueman says:

Hi, When describing the direction a wave breaks we use the terms right and left. South would be the right hander, North the left hander. This wave no matter which direction it is surfed is very dangerous at this size. The reason the right is surfed more is due to it being a very intense "difficult" wave to surf, that's what these surfers are looking for… Also it offers a chance to get barreled. The left is horrendous, you do not want to get wiped by the left at that size.

Numz says:

I'd say 2 maybe 3 foot.

Shut your mouth fool, you don't have the balls to be out there saving peoples lives – go back to your miserable life in your mom's basement and jack off some more

Marco Biancardi says:

…only on the big wave, just to enjoy it more.
