Talk about fearless! Truly amazing…. and all the more so to know he lived through it….
Yes Ned plus according to Brook he was awarded $66,000. for surfing this wave… Truly amazing! :)
Hi…I’m a surfer… great post…Amazing scary wave….the big wave riders aren’t from this planet!
Wow! You’re a surfer! Nice meeting you here via WordPress and thanks for sharing your thoughts Sunlitrain :) See you around!
I am finding this a bit hard to believe. So difficult to tell what is real on the internet and what is fake.
Ya, :) That is why it is Unbelievable… haha
This giant wave surfing video is apparently a true event. I looked it up at Snopes for “hoaxocity” quality and found that the surfer is Mike Parsons, born March 3, 1965. This surfing event, reportedly, was sponsored by Billabong Corp. and Parsons was awarded $66,000 for surfing this wave, which was 66 feet (22 meters) high. There’s some confusion, to me, about whether this took place at Cortez Bank, CA or Maui. At Amazon.com, you can purchase a “mini-DVD” called “Billabong Odyssey: The Search for the World’s Biggest Waves” and see other such amazing surfing feats. So, as far as believability of anything amazing…I’ve read (forget where) that the more absurd something seems, the more it’s likely to be true. Good for thought!
Awesome! Thanks for the additional report or info Brook :)
$66K for surfing one wave. I shoulda went to surf school instead of culinary school.
I had the very same experience in my bathtub once. It took me three weeks to get the water out of my ears. On the plus side, it was the cleanest they’ve ever been… : P
Really? You’re just so amazing Mark! hehehe Thanks for the smile :)
So true. I think we sometimes forget that moments are as important as months or years.
Yes, like at this moment, you found time to leave me a comment and I highly appreciate this :) Thanks so much my friend :)
Its hard to tell who it is but it might be Ross Clarke Jones
According to Brook it was Mike Parson, perhaps you’d like to check it out…Thanks Baghead :)
