Those waves looked like monsters rising from the deep, very impressive.

A contender for the largest wave ever ridden.

A huge swell hit Portugal the other day , and coupled with the bathymetry of the area around Nazare , someone is laying claim to riding a 90 footer. :crazy:

OK then soooooo, at the risk of looking a fool 'though let face it, thats never stopped a post before', at 2:45 in the left hand part of the wave is it just me or is that a shark inside?

Probably just a clump of seaweed sucked off the reef by the wave.

Sharks are hardcore , but not that hardcore !

this is a good wave but their are bigger and harder waves out their i have a surf buddy that was their on a small day and he said it was still mad

i have been surfing 10 years my self and i still could not see myself surfing that wave one mistake its all over

Laird Hamilton takes on Teahupoo - YouTube

a clip from riding giants

just a quick list of the top ten


The Top 10 Deadliest Waves || Transworld Surf
Well , i follow a lot of surfing , and used to do an awful lot of it before i grew up and got a mortgage and kids and Teahupoo is the heaviest without a doubt , no contest.

There is a difference between heaviest and largest .... Teahupoo is the thickest wave by far .... sure there are larger , Jaws , Outer Log Cabins , The Cortez Bank ( 100+ miles offshore , its where they reckon the first 100ft wave will be ridden ) , Mavericks etc etc .... the lip on Lairds video is nothing like the double code red day .
