Looks tough. Granted I'd probably have a better chance catching that wave then riding one in Rockaway the past few days. Ugh, so flat.

They're officially surfing waves bigger than Wilbur Kookmeyer ever imagined. 


I'm watching this http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/pipeline-oahu_4750/  and it now seems down right tiny in comparison.

I'm guessing he skipped the wavejet for this one....  8)

Insane.


Wow that video was just awful. Exorcist music, quick cuts of several waves so you don't know what happened on any of them.....I guess that's the trailer.
It's no better to be safe than sorry....
