As it's breaking on the tip of the last ones whitewater I'd say it's prob a set but not the biggest of the day. Around 5 foot but 6 on the biggest sets.

Yo boy. Nice one there the boys. I hope he made the most of that shoulder. He`s crouched low and that makes it look bigger. Modern groms would call it 5 to 7 feet. It`s a good 6 in the peak but who gives a fekk about what size we call it if we weren`t there?

creature has never yet seen one surf the back of a wave.....creature has tried surfing the back of a wave but never finds as much satisfaction as surfing the front..

Good system Moony. Compared to my mighty winky, this wave is definitely bigger (I measured from both the back and front to be sure)…….the vanity project is unhappy to report that this wave also appears to be a good deal cleaner too…..and as valentines day is looming and I don’t have a date, I may also have to add the “unridden” tag. While I’m at it, after some objective surveying of the old chap, “comedy” and “abstract” seem to fit the bill too.

because barry took off late of the wave of the day air dropped to flats and was unlucky to bog in then the lip crashed onto his head.... just ... and barry is 4ft tall! on Holiday in Hawaii he is two foot tall and sometimes cant reach up to mail his postcards home....

fair bit bigger than 4 ft consistently on this day. and i hate to open up a can of euphoniums here, but size isn't everything, was a quality day, even if i only managed to get out once...
