I don't see any jetski wake from the guy riding the second wave. It looks like he paddled into that monster? legit.

i think he would get the record for the worlds biggest paddle in on the worlds shortest board.

ok, i know nothing of maui, but this looks suspiciously photoshopped. First off, the waves seem to come at totally different angles, also no waves between the two pictured and no whitewater indicating waves previous to the outside wave... am i wrong here?

I bet the groom's happy with the barrel he just got on the inside but when he sees the best-mans bomb left behind him,he's gonna be dirty! Great shot!It shows the arena in a different perspective and just how much is really going on out there!

The lip gets a little windy for a while before it breaks when it's that big. However, it is still facking nuts.

Awesome ! Do you think some wider objective could possibly capture the whole thing (I mean the background wave's lip and all of the foreground wave as well) ? Or is Jaws too big for that ?
