At least he held on to the ring!
Surfing a tsunami like a boss. There's no room for error!!!
It was either that or get rolled over. He must be sore after that landing.
These bears will wave to you for a little snack.
Teahupoo, Tahiti is widely known throughout the world of surfing as having the most powerful break on the planet. There are certainly larger waves found breaking at other places in the world, but none that break with such impact and ferocity as found at Teahupoo.
Waving back is the polite thing to do.
Garrett McNamara has surfed what is considered to be the biggest wave ever. The Hawaiian big wave rider caught the huge monster in Portugal, during the ZON North Canyon Project 2011.
That must have taken a while to set up.
These guys are just plain nuts! They are risking their lives for some insane waves!
