you cant see because of the swell in the foreground but if you follow that little left to right streak down the face, you'd see me on my new hamster ball prototype.

I’m thinking of James Taylor’s GoPro video clip “barrel that broke my back” and looking at this……………. Shit I wouldn’t even like to think about the impact created by this wave!!!

the impact from this would probably force your legs and arms up through your spinal column and through your mouth and you'd end up looking like Sandy Toksvig. at a guess

If you anchored a ship to that impact zone with an unbreakable chain, I don't think it would last a day

The lip looks thicker than Teahoopu. How heavy will that impact zone be ?

None of the above. Just shootin' the breeze about the scariest wave I've ever seen. You know, the wind feathering on the front of the lip looks a bit like the Jaws lip, but behind that feathering there is a whole other megalip that looks to me like it could be 15' thick. Not survivable.

Confused... you've surfed Teahupoo, you've surfed this, or you've had a sumo wrestler sit on your face? Admire your balls if all 3...

Re the sumo comment ... been there, done that. Ain't fun. But this wave would have the sumo guy sit on your face for a few minutes after he fell on you, twisting your limbs all the while. Also not fun. Trust me on this. This is Teahupoo, the school bully, all grown up and become the ruthless Mafia Godfather's hulking enforcer. I have more metaphors, but time is precious.

Makes Teahupo'o look a bit anorexic... this be like having a sumo wrestler dropped on your head from 100 metres... not that I'd know, I'd be trembling on the shore
