Artist's Description

This is my 30x40 inch analysis of the height of this famous wave that a surfer was towed into at Cortes Bank on 1-05-08. The tricky part was figuring out how tall the surfer would be standing up straight, because of his unusual crouching stance. Here is how I estimate wave height. Measure the wave, divide the surfer's height (standing up straight) into the wave's height to get times overhead, and multiply that by the surfer's height. If Mike Parsons is 6' tall (as I recall), the wave would be 13 x 6' = 78 feet tall, which is very close to the Billabong XXL judges estimate of 77 feet. He had been riding the wave for 15 seconds before the photo was taken. It may have been over 80 feet near the start of the ride. This still is the only view in existence, that I know of, from a water-angle a true 13-times-overhead wave. See the actual photo that appeared in the New York Times article. If link below does not work, search Google "Surfers Defy Giant Waves Awakened by Storm"....

These are true-to-scale paintings of the biggest waves ever surfed in high definition. Some are imaginary reconstructions of actual events, such as Ken at Log Cabins on "Biggest Wednesday", and Greg Noll at Makaha. There were no photos taken of their historic rides. Others are from sketches I made from viral videos and photos. All surfer and photographer names are available on request. The Mike Parsons wave painting is based on the original photograph by Robert Brown but with a unique view of the trough. There IS NO photograph of Ken Bradshaw's biggest wave. Hank's famous photo featured on Ken Bradshaw's web site was a smaller 65-footer Ken rode later the same day. Greg Noll's wave is mythical, with the scale based on Larry...
