From time to time, I just have to return and check out this incredibly sick mutant slab. It reminds me of the sheer bravado of some athletes and also the need for those who speak disparagingly of "spongers" to show some respect.

This is an awesome wave and rider, real surfers/boogers respect each other, only the kooks trying to act the part would be calling spongers gay when they see a picture like this. Maybe you guys are just jealous that all the beads round ya neck and stickers for your split screen VW still dont make a you a good surfer, or is it that getting worked on a wave like this doesn't compare to getting your foamy mini-mal on ya head in 1ft onshore mush? or is it that you guys don't have dicks to drag? getting boring when every good wave with a sponger gets ripped by a bunch of cnuts, instead next time put a better pic of yourself on a gnarlier wave as the argument! what's that?....... nothing, i though as much.

this is so amazing, Rawlins is an absolute freak of humanity. I hope he lives a long life doing this crazy mind bhe worlds heaviest wlowing riding. Pushing bodyboarding to the limits. So does everyone still agree that Teahupoo is the heaviest wave? I mean photos and even footage can be deceiving, but surely this would be the worlds heaviest wave.? Heaviest peak surely

maxscab's avatar

maxscab Mar 30, 2010 Rating: -20

Teahupoo is heaviest, this is gnarlier perhaps. You gotta have balls to drop in on that though. Bigger than mine!

The aspect of the public looking 'from the outside looking in' is partly what makes what we do interesting and so much fun....Surfing dangerous looking waves, surfing in freezing conditions....etc is all part of the sense of well being and achievement we feel afterwards. I remember about 15 years ago watching a live weather report where a TV reporter was in extreme coastal conditions shouting dramatically at the camera.....big waves, howling winds etc....and this surfer ran past behind her trying to find a spot to get in for a surf......It was not a friend or anyone I know, but as I sat there in front of the TV chuckling away at the extreme worlds of the two people in the TV screen, I felt really proud to be part of the world the lunatic going for a surf existed in. I f*cking love this sh*t we do. Cheers for the photo.

you know something, after reading the comments about this guy risking his life on this wave (which most of you would just piss yourself), im embarassed to say I surf the same ocean as some of you. The ocean belongs to us all, remember that. We are ALL lucky that we have been given waves to ride. Waveriding is not about being a f*ckin prick which most of you people have displayed, its about a common love for the feeling of being free for a few moments. Who are YOU to say whats right and wrong? I love surfing more than anything in this world, hands down. But I like to boogey board too. Quit trying to be cool by making comments that make you sound like an asshole, and just let people do what makes them happy....especially when they are a hundered times gnarlier than you EVER would dream to be.

What a mutant. real heavy. By the way. There's more to tow in surfing than standing up and turning. You have to have the balls to actually drop in on a wave that is more than 5 times your height. And then you have to measure how fast you have to go to not get swallowed up. Try it sometime. I don't that any couch potato could do it.

No one seems to have mentioned that tow surfing on a stand up is the easiest thing in the world. Doesn't need any 'athleticism' or 'skill'. A fat couch potato could do it. Paddling into this on a lid however takes ocean knowledge, mahoosive balls and being ready to take the pounding...

Veteran Surfer Nov 17, 2008 Rating: 32

Like I siad previously better to have just used fippers and throw the bag away. Leave the slabs and big waves to the surfers. Bleh bleh bleh.. I think if you haven't been on wave like this then you will never understand the motivation behind charging killer waves. After years of Moto-X big wave tow surfing has been my new fix since 2001. And after surfing killer slabs and big waves the wipe outs still don't compare to Moto-x wipe outs. All you need to surf waves like these is the stength and power in your body to handle the wipe-outs and trust me it's not a matter of if you wipe-out if you tow surf and you charge its only a matter of time before you wipe out. Personal best wipe-out 20foot left hand barrel at Papatowai NZ the pressure aS the barrel closed out blew my left ear drum shit I hate tennitus... Personal best wipe out on Moto-X hitting train tracks and broke my legs and back... HMMMMM I think I'll stick with charging big grunty killer waves just like this lovely looking wave. SURFER!!!!

Spongerdudette Nov 11, 2008 Rating: 2

Maybe this might help to put an end to the arguing. During the summer, I took my young daughter to Porth beach (Newquay) to teach her to bodyboard. Some standup surfers came along with their boards, but the lifeguard told them that you can only bodyboard there (due to the narrow beach). They seemed ok with that, and went back to their vehicle and got out some bodyboards instead. When they came out of the water later on, they seemed really happy. My point is that it doesn't matter how you surf, as long as you can just get out there and enjoy the waves. Peace and respect to all wavelovers.

Now thats a slab, what I don't understand is that "it's not being surfed???" Or maybe it is being surfed but we don't have the photos showing a surfer getting pitted... For sure the teabagger is on his guts sliding down the face but really try standing up in this monster you will definitely get a better respect for riding waves... I give 10 out 10 of for the wave. Sorry I don't rate boogers you may have well just have swimmed into this monster with flippers only, now that would have impressed me!!!

Well quite clearly he must be a wrecking machine then, I think I may stay out of the water altogether in future, as I have no idea who this guy is and I don't want to get my arse beaten through ignorance.

luckly where I surf there is no mob, and certainly none with some wannabe gangsta number name. very little aggro either. maybe thats why i dont get this childish slagging.........the worst was "surfings beter cause we stand up"... hahaha , now really

the simple facts are that boogie boarders are a total pain in the ass for surfers,because they dont stand up and they have those fins to catch a wave they make it hard to coexist in the line up,whereas surfers from all kinds of places with all kind of boards and varied talent can work out a system for getting along,as soon you throw in the boogies you have ugly situation.it pisses you off to have to deal with thier crutches,no stand-up drops,fins to catch the wave etc etc.on the other hand when its all surfers its all fair for everyone or at least even odds from the start.surfers dont anything like this to boogie boarders,unless they use their crutches to piss you off so much you just stuff them

Abstract plane "questionable statements that contradict from previous post" My post is my basic opinion as a boogie and a stand-up. Please don’t get defensive just because I don’t conclude that stand-up is better and so doesn’t fit you’re one track thinking and you’re chip on shoulder arrogant desire for recognition as superior to all others given that you are a stand-up. I can drop any wave with fins on and I regularly out paddle people. Years of practice makes it possible for me to turn in tight to the lip at the close out and flip some sick air when I am body boarding. That took me years of practice to master. When I arrive at a working break I have both disciplines to choose from because I have both my boards. When my girlfriend comes with me she can also choose what she wants to do. She generally body boards because she hates the ridiculous arrogant behaviour of STD Uppers. I personally don’t notice it.

(questionable statements that contradict from previous post) "Bodyboarding: I do this cos I can surf bigger waves for LONGER and more safely than standup" "....because of the DRAG I have in the water." "Standing up is however NO great feat of genius given a little practice by anyone." Conclusion: The incredible drag of the boogyman makes it hard to make very fast sections. On average a board surfer gets much longer ride with smooth long floaters and powerful pumps for speed for example. It is the incredible feats that take many years to master. (I have nothing against riders of the boogie) I just like to defend speed production of surf boards. ( and skill)

Suckyripfuked's avatar

Suckyripfuked Nov 10, 2008 Rating: -23

By the way. Bodyboarding: I do this cos I can surf bigger waves for longer and more safely than standup. I find I need to maintain an incredible level of fitness to sustain this sport becasue of the drag I have in the water. Hence the fins. Bodyboarding is more of a sport for commited swimmers When my leash breaks I like the fact that I still have fins. Standup: When I standup surf I can surf big waves but they tend to have to be much cleaner and neat and tidy. I like standing up because I can see the wave and like the turns and the leans just like snowboarding. I also like the ease of the paddle out. Standing up is however no great feat of genius given a little practice by anyone.

Suckyripfuked's avatar

Suckyripfuked Nov 10, 2008 Rating: -27

Well said Soutie. I couldnt realy give a damn if this wave was being surfed on a Door. As long as personal thrill and enjoyment is the cause I am on the fence. Being both a "Standup" and a "sponger" I think everybody should try surfing. Although I would recommend starting with standup, because sponging is so rad you wont be able to quit it, people should drop verbaly abusing people becasue they choose "other" crafts. When you are surfing you are FREEEeeee! FREE FREE! You are free from abuse, free from prejudice and free from the fuckery of modern life. When you are out surfing no government, no person can tell you what to do or think. Politics is pointless in surfing. As long as the Nu-surfers of this world can recongise that that is the ethos of any outdoor sport, the better that surfing will be for everybody. People that cannot walk in another mans shoes are very challenged in the IQ department. Sick wave and very brave of anyone to tackle this beast.

Yeah I wouldn't mind having a pop at Stand up, but I don't have that choice. I put money on it that most you Stand up's out there couldn't what have to do, and the other annoying thing is you always have to buy fins as a pair (what a waste) anyway, wind your necks in and give respect to anyone who surfs, 1 or 2 legged, standing up lying down, we're all there for the same reason, so keep your childish comments in your tiny minds.

No one has looked at this photo and gone oh my god look at that insane lip, then seen its a bodyboarder and then thought pffffft, everyone knows that however you end up in that section of the wave, you have done something most people will never do.

I am so bored with this continous slating of spongers/standups. Mild piss taking - no problem but why the rancour and really unpleasant sniping? It happens in almost every sport, certainly the ones I'm involved in. Skiing/snowboarding, hang gliding/paragliding. I'm a stand up and hang glider pilot, both paragliding and body boarding are far far more accessable at the beginning - hence the huge take up of both. However all four disciplines require a great deal of skill to get really good at. Sponging and stand up both have different areas of excellence - stand up on that wave - no f***ing way! Sponging on a 50+ foot wave - no f***ing way! Both are great fun so please can we at least see some acceptance of each others strengths and enjoy that massive thrill we all get from surfing/flying/sliding!

This Bodyboard vs. Surfer commentary is sooo freaking sad it's not even funny. All you surfers wasting your time whining, I think can't even surf. I surf excellent and respect BB's for what they get. Why? Theres a few spots whereever I've lived, and I've lived in more places than any one of you sad ass'. Wanna start with Hawaii, lived there for 19 years-theres a spot next to Sandy Beach that surfers don't touch. BBs only. Last time I surfed there, had two fins busted off my board, and that wasn't from the locals. When will the gay, racist thinking stop? This whole commentary is focusing on better/best, ego/insecurity. Funny cause they're just towin' in.

I'll put it to you another way... What would your reaction have been to this photo if it was a stand up surfer? Would it have been different at all? Maybe not, but many would have reacted differently. I know I would have. To my mind, it's like comparing a layup to a dunk in basketball. Yea it takes some serious talent, skill, balls, wherewithal, etc., to drive the lane and get to the basket and score on a layup, but a dunk is something completely different.

for all you fools saying "shoulda gone left, stupid dickdragger" http://surfermag.com/features/onlineexclusives/hugeoakley-600.jpg it walls up way across to the left, then sucks dry on the outside and closes out. the surfer in the pic said this: Kerby knew he had pulled into something big, and feared he would drown: “I was lucky to get to where I got, I went straight over in the lip and did about 10 backflips and then pulled a muscle in my shoulder. It felt like I ripped my arm out of it’s socket, my leggie snapped and then I felt like I was the deepest I’d ever been (underwater). I took about 10 huge big strokes to get up and I was seriously struggling. I finally got to the surface and I was ready to pass out, luckily my brother was there on the ski.”

I recon this argument come down to functionality and control. Surfers would be gunning it to the shoulder, looking like they are basically just holding on, but a booger can calmy ride the beast, pop a spin in the barrel and come out. It may be quite a good adrenaline rush on a stand up, but you would miss most of the ride due to blind panic and fear. I'd much prefer to be on a sponge, it probably is easier, but why are wheels round not square...

I can totally understand why there is such hate between stand up and boogers coz its the whole, 'you guys don't get to your feet therefore you are less skilled'. and theres the comment about the 'kneecap half standing up thing'. The thing with us lidders is that we don't use fins to help us keep control. We use 100% balance. So heres a thought, take off your training wheels and see how you go. This isn't aimed at all surfies, just the narrow minded ones. Which are usually the old dumb, puff out your chest, 'I've been surfing/wanking for 30 years'

God, there really are some pathetic people that post comments on here. I have never bodyboarded in my life, but if you can't appreciate what a heavy wave this is, or the fact that it does require skill to do any sort of boarding in these conditions then you're bordering on mental retardation. It's a very childish attitude to automatically slag someone off just because they do something different to you. Having said that, the sly little dig from the poster if the photo isn't even slightly helpful, and is just as pathetic. And having said that, this is a great great photo.

Everyone keeps saying what large balls this guy has but I actually know him on a personal level and one day I took a piss with him and he was sitting down...He told me he had actually gotten his balls and small little penis removed to reduce drag in these exact situations...I mean sure , its a crazy wave....But the guys got no dick or balls...Anyone without meat and grapes could do that !

ok....I been reading your comments for some time now. ( recognize alot of the names) I have to say this: I started surfing probably before alot of your mommys and daddys were out of their diapers. Alot of surfers back then also thought they were gods and above the rest of society. Yeah yeah we used all the slang and looked down at everyone else that wasn't "surf". I guess children never change. But I thought kids today were more inteligent than that. Guess I was wrong. Most of you in here seem to have their heads on straight, as do most surfers I meet. ( but they ARE a little goofy in Oregon) AS to the others, (kooks or gremmiesI think we called em.)grow up and take the high road for a change. (and no, I'm not talking about drugs)

riptide mag's website is full of sick shots, but this one is my favourite. it illustrates where the bleeding edge of bodyboarding is at today. the stand ups are missing the point - it's about the wave, not the rider/board. so you can stand up on a wave, good for you, get over it. you think bodyboarders at this level aren't able to ride stand up boards too - of course they can?! they're watermen. they can and do ride anything they feel like. a bodyboard is the weapon of choice for this wave. if it was a 2 foot, slack, 200m long ride, they'd be on a longboard.

Dicer Nov 5, 2008 Rating: -32

harveywallbanger. A bodyboarder called Brendon Newton (a regular at Chopes) was catching mahooosif Chopes just paddling into them. Laird, Manoua and bunch of others surfers asked him if he needed a tow but he refused. Mutal respect, later on Brendo asked if he could have a go on a surfboard (never ridden one) and managed to get up at super sized Chopes (not for very long!) but just goes to show huh! also on youtube....

Heavy? yes! Chopes heavy? No looking at riptides sight he makes most of them, chopes at this size would guarantee only the hardest surfers trying it because bodyboards dont have the speed required. chopes is heavier,quicker and more critical... give it a year youll see some surfers towin this,.

Shoreylover, you like boogie boarding, good for you, have fun. Surfing a wave like this would be much more extreme because of the transition from prone to standing , not because it's too heavy for surfing, some crazies surf Waimea shorebreak. It definitely takes more skill to stand up. Does this affect me and you? No. I've tried bodyboarding and every other form of wave riding too and I find it boring, a teenage MTV kick rather than a soulful lifetime pursuit. Do what you enjoy and I'll do the same.

Because it is too heavy. Bboarders can ride any kind of wave. Surfing is limited in that sense. Pulling backflips and ARS`s takes a lot a shitload of coordination and timing my friend. As I said both are rad, neither is better than the other, they are two different sports. Why dont we compare tennis with basketball, both are played on a court.

To all the people that respect both bodyboarders and stand-up surfers; keep on thinking for yourself with an open mind and enjoying the waves. To all the people putting bodyboarding down; think about all the ‘new school’ areal moves in stand-up surfing today that you probably admire so much and then watch a bodyboarding flick.

ok, everyone is saying stuff like "stand ups are so much better" and all that. there a elite watermen in both surfing and bodyboarding. and in this case its a bodyboarder. and also, bodyboarding takes alot of skill, you need to keep transfering weight on the board. and i dont see any of the guys below who are saying that surfers would go left or they would go harder or whatever, i dont see you guys on covers or on waves on nearly this size. the bodyboarders have set a benchmark in riding big, heavy waves. ps. this is a secret wave in wa. its not cyclops or shipsterns. have fun debating

mutant cave! on the whole bodyboard vs surfboard issue, is it fair to say that bodyboaders are the scouts for surfing? i think its hard to argue that BB is harder than surfing, but the first people on new unridden waves like this are usually spongers, so i dont think its fair to give them all this abuse when they are the ones who find most of the new waves for us surfers.

They only said somewhere in the Indian Ocean. In other words is a mutant wave that is created in the middle of the ocean, open to solid swells. Ahh and below sea level. Read first and then talk.

westmonster Nov 4, 2008 Rating: -34

hahaha, speaking of tit's why do you brits think thats an actual insult? Just askin....anyways this is probably not Cyclops -the shelfing and crazy ledging on that wave would be on the opposite end where the dry reef is right in the impact zone. This wave is probably, like I said before, shipsterns bluff. It looks very much like many of the bigger waves at that break.

That is possibly the most insane wave I've ever seen and I can't believe it's being ridden. How nuts have you got to be to see waves like that and paddle out? The abuse from stand ups is funny. If it's so easy, why not go and make some easy money doing stuff like this? I would play pro-basketball or something even though I hate it if it paid me to do what I wanted. It's got to beat 40 hours a week in an office. I rarely get any abuse for sponging as I tend not to surf until it gets over head high and then the gobby losers that like to abuse spongers can't make it out then. All the times I can think of aggro was when it was chest high or less. So if you can't deal with that, how could you deal with one like the one above?

biff22 Nov 4, 2008 Rating: -28

Lots of bodyboarder/surfer conflict on this one. Yes, this shot is crazy and deserves respect regardless of whether you surf or bodyboard. But, this would be better if it were a surfer. Surfing is flat-out more difficult to do... YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE ATHLETICISM/QUICKNESS TO GET TO YOUR FEET BEFORE YOU GET WORKED OVER AFTER YOU CATCH THE WAVE. That aspect is not present in bodyboarding. Not to mention that when you get worked in bodyboarding, you are dealing with a SOFT board and you are already lying down instead of falling from your feet. I get it bodyboarders...share the waves...we are all enjoying the ocean, etc... but, waves being equal, surfers put more on the line for their love of the ocean just by virtue of standing vs. prone. Period.

Francois Bouwer's avatar

Francois Bouwer Mar 14, 2010 Rating: -16

I haven't bodyboarded much but all I can say to me the wipe is worse, it is nearly impossible to get yourself in a comfortable position to take the wipe if the wave closes on you. And drops are scarier to me as well. I find it easier to take a drop if I jump up, purely because it doesn't seem as big as when lying down. Sure, you can just hold on for dear life, but then bottom turning is much more difficult.
