No other wave will ever compare to the performance and severity of pipe. A world class wave that has made legends and broken more boards than bones. this is a classic photograph that sums up what a good wave at pipe is all about.

The surfer is Thiago 'Shrimp' Camarão, from Brazil. And yes he made it. Here's the video footage http://www.surfline.com/video/video_player/video_player_t1.cfm?id=50272

Thanks Guilhermelv...+1 for that...I'll take your word for it being true. It does look like the same guy...just a much different angle. My eyes still deceive me a bit though...His track in the wave face and the boardshorts color seem a little different in this still pic vs. those in that video. Probably a shade & perpective trick. Still pics do have their limitatations sometimes. Now HE'S no longer 'unknown' either.

Patrick...Your 'Unknown regular foot' pic caption sounds a little foreboding...Kinda like...'Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier'. Did he actually make it?...Doesn't look to me, from this angle, like he's got enough speed or the intention of cranking a bottom turn up into the pocket and away from the impact zone he is in. Hard to see him escaping from this beautiful monster. Would love to see a sequence shot or two after this one.

Dude, he just dropped into this beast, of coarse he has speed. And he doesn't need to bottom turn much, since the wave itself will suck him upwards into the perfect spot. If you watch vids of teahupoo you'd see the people rarely need to make huge bottom turns on the bigger, heavier waves, the wave sucks them up. Remember, the photo doesn't move, so how can you judge speed?

Perhaps the caption should read: "Unknown regular foot earning respect while very consciously and carefully choosing a successful exit strategy.....and all the while suppressing any thoughts of the liquid sledgehammer above him and the gnarled reef below"
