No that wave wasn't much over 20 feet. I was there the day the biggest wave hit. Sometime in the early 90's. 35 foot plus. Nobody caught it. It was a 20-25 foot day with occasional larger. Then one monster set came in. The wave broke 300 feet OUTSIDE of everyone. I ditched my board and dove for the bottom like everyone else. Took me probably 15 minutes to swim in. The rip set up after the big set, like it does. Had to swim nearly over to Cylinders to get in. And the whole time my boogie board was on the rocks. And 500 people on the beach and not one mofo had the courtesy to go get my effing board off the rocks.

Not even close ! During the largest summer swell of 1968 or1969 the waves were much larger and they were lining up perfectly making a giant bowl break. One guy was on the beach with a professional movie camera set-up. Most of the guys,(all body surfers back then), were getting rescued and pulled out of the water. The rescue boat almost got caught inside by one of the biggest sets. As it was trying to escape it was getting some major air flying over the waves. The set broke over the jetty at the END ! Guys got caught and were instantly in the water fighting the surf and rocks. People came to their rescue.
I was 19 and an older guy, with a shaved head, around 30 years old was ripping it. He was very selective only taking the biggest wave of the set. After his ride he would come in, rest then go out right before the next set came in.
It was quite a sight seeing the lifeguards dragging exhausted swimmers out of the surf.
That day had 20'+ surf and at Dana point 20 people were washed off the jetty.
I would love to see the film from that epic day.
