Hopefully you didn't notice that the wave I'm riding is a little bit smaller than the other waves.  I prefer slightly larger surf than that wave but five or maybe six foot surf is about my limit.  This 7 to 10 feet stuff is just crazy.

The problem with big surf isn't catching the wave, that's the fun part, the problem is when you try to catch a wave and wipe out instead.  Falling off a ten foot wave is equivalent to falling off your roof then having someone dump a swimming pool's worth of water on top of you.  It's not as easy as it sounds.

It's great fun to watch the local surfers on these giant waves but as much as I want to join them, I know I'm safer on the shore taking pictures.  After this big swell dies down a bit, then I'll go back out there.
