ASPWorldTour's photo of Teahupoo

How big is too big? The Billabong Pro presented by Air Tahiti Nui is going to look something like the beast from above. This Manoa Drollet wave was on a swell of 14ft at 14 seconds from 209 degrees. Saturday is calling for bigger swell (10 to 14ft at 20 seconds at 190-195 degrees) what will that look like? No one really knows.

I've said it before and i'll say it again. 99% of us on here would shit our pants even watching that from the beach. Even from inside a boat I would be worried about the outboard cutting out, the mental integrity of the driver of the boat, the likelihood of rouge flotsam and jetsam busting a hole in the boat! The list goes on..

Look at his wake running into the barrel and then the thickness of water above that. In the words of Del Trotter - "He who dares, wins!"

Tow surfing this wave is easy, you just pull in, smack the lip, WHAPAH, drop down, BAWWHHHH, then after that, just ride the barrel and get pitted, so pitted.

Wanting to surf something and actually saying that you could are two different things. I want to surf that but I know I wouldn't have a hope in hell.
