I’m no surfer clearly but how the fook do you get back into shore without dying/drowning!

I don’t think its possible to fully appreciate how effing big those waves are! truly insane.
4-5′ in New Jersey had me shitting my boardies and they were small days in summer…that big wave stuff there so close to the shore line is just mesmerising!! 8) 😯Posted 4 years agogofasterstripesSubscriber
If you’re on FB you can see a pic from Porthcothan taken by a coupla friends of mine on Sunday
Here’s another they took a few years back:
If you want to know about big waves – watch Riding Giants.
Here’s a video of Teahupoo, perhaps the most extreme piece of hydrodynamics that exists – my fave wave [not that I’d go anywhere near it], just for the beauty of it:

that rescue video made me quiet emotional.
the big wave riders are brave as **** for sure, but hats off to their support crews for their bravery too, there is footage some where of a jetski rider taking a full hit from the whitewater at jaws to keep hold of someone unconscious in the water. when you could twist a wrist and get out of there, that is seriously brave in my book.
love the footage from nazare its something else the way its so close to the beachPosted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber

“Look at it! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, man! Let me go out there and let me get one wave, just one wave before you take me in. I mean, come on man, where I am I gonna go? Cliffs on both sides! I’m not gonna paddle my way to New Zealand! Come on, compadre. Come on!”
