The size of his balls, they must've taken as big a drop as he did on this one when he was a grom. He looks committed enough to make this I reckon. Great pic, poster-worthy!

The lip is falling so verticaly..i don't understand how it would break like that..or is it just the angle?

Thanks millerdr, it's just that i have never seen this wave break so upright that there is no barrel and the white water is hitting the face of the wave, not even reaching the bottom! I think i'll give this wave a miss thanks! :)

The deepwater hits a massive boil, and thats how it breaks. The lip is heavy; if the lip hits you, its a good hold down and usually leash snaps, the board snaps, or the leash rips thru the glass and ruins your board. Looking directly into the bowl gives a true idea of the dynamics. It's all about the airdrops out there. Even with a 10'gun, the wave is always an elevator drop.
