I'd love to know how big it is. It's difficult to say with out any reference points between camera and wave. I think the most frightening aspect of this wave is the 2 bigger waves looming out back

There is only 1 wave in that shot. Its what happens when you go from very deep onto a shallow slab. If you check out some shots of teahupoo you will see a very simular setup on the double lip. As for surfing this wave it would be only manageable really with tow in. Paddle in you wouldnt have a chance due to a quick drop. Even if you made it you would be so deep with nowhere to go.

At common law, every person born within the dominions and allegiance of the British Crown (and no other) was a British subject. This meant that to be a British subject, one simply had to be born in any territory under the sovereignty of the British Crown. The only exception at common law was that the children of foreign ambassadors took the nationality of their fathers, who were immune from local jurisdiction and duties of allegiance. So it looks as though he isnt british after all eh.
