yes I did

This guy. He is a water skier, of repute. Just does it on monster waves like Jaws and Mavericks !

of course he had a jetski tow. (!)

Yep, I agree with that... Mavericks looks like just another wave. ... Until. OK so it is 50 ft. and also he wasn't towed by jetski, which makes it all the more remarkable. Such power


The tube footage .... I found myself leaning in. I've been in a tube, but not like that. Maybe 1/27th!?!?

Barrelling forever ....... what a ride.

I've been watching Peter Mel's ride for a couple of days. Doesn't look so special until you look at dozens of other Mavericks rides.
What thickness of wetsuit did he have ? Looks about 10mm ....... Michelin man stuff. I've been in some west coast water ..... it's absolutely freezing, even colder than Arctic circle water in Finland !!!

Cheers
