Its a sport that is very new and it was created in America, albeit in Hawaii. They call it big wave surfing and it is one of the most sensational sports as of late. Yes its an extreme sport. The surfer must be towed in by a personal water craft because the waves are so huge and dynamic you simply couldn’t catch the wave unless you were going the same speed.
Athletes like the legendary Laird Hamilton pictured win with a thrilling ride of his life live for the adrenaline rush. The danger of a 70 foot wall of water behind you, makes it quite common to see one of these daredevils perish and that’s ironically part of the thrill for those ‘T’ types.
This is a sport that is not for the meek. Meek or not we’re watching from the safety and comfort of the shore !
