Big Wave Action



My first reaction when I saw this picture was "Holy $%@#!" Look at the thickness of the wave and how it doubles on itself as it pitches over.

This picture is courtesy of Reuters and found here at dailymail.co.uk along with an article about it. This apparently took place at a secret outer reef off Australia.

And here is a short 4 minute interview (along with some brief action clips including him windsurfing) with big wave waterman Laird Hamilton, who has been promoting his new book.

That looks like Shipstern Bluff off the coast of Tasmania.

Frightening. Can you imagine getting rolled in that thing when it breaks?
