@giovanii the wave is measured at the back of the wave to the crest,the face(what we see),would be around a 100 ft at least

I would die, I'm used to riding little orange county waves, 2-3 foot.

For the surfer and for the guy on the jet ski. I've taken a jet ski into 30 foot waves many times at Mavericks. 78 foot must be just insane.

Some are close to the shore and some are far but there always has to be SOMETHING relatively shallow under there to form the wave. So basically most of these waves have reefs and things under them which makes many of them even MORE dangerous than they already are.

I dont know anything about surf, but when he entered, the wave wasnt that big. The important is the wave height, or the height of the position of the serfer from the wave base?

That's the height of a small 5-8story office building!! I've always wondered if people would try to catch and ride 'tsunami' type waves.

Yesterday, I was hacked so bad, it was like the wave this man rode. I beat 'em off yesterday. They are quiet today. They are waiting for the cover of darkness no doubt.
