Laird Hamilton, he does the American Express commercials.They did a documentary on him.He gets towed in cause there is no way to get up to speed for them giant waves..it's unbelievable really.You'd have to think he has taken a few ass whoopins to get to that stage..

Believe it or not that video is pretty old. Laird and other have surfed bigger Jaws since then...

 

Some still believe the biggest wave ever ridden was by Ken Bradshaw at Outside Log Cabins in the El Nino winter of 98' (I think thats the year)... Some estimate it could have been somewhere around 70-80ft cwm31.gifcwm31.gifcwm31.gif

 

Tow in surfing is really impressive... But the guys that paddle into the 40-50ft ++ waves really got some balls biggrin.gifcwm31.gif This winter at Mavricks was some insane footage of paddle in surfing.

This isn't the biggest wave, but Teahupoo Tahiti has the thickest, meanest wave ever. Just plain sick.........................

These big wave surfers are serious athletes. Laird John Hamilton is one of the pioneers of the sport.They are always trying to push the envelope a little farther. He is no spring chicken any longer either. His workouts to stay in shape are just plain sick. His wife Gabrielle Reese ain't to shabby eitherwink.gif
