This is an imaginary wave not based on any photograph. This is what it might look like, from the water angle, to see a surfer riding a 100-foot barreling wave. This would be possible at the Cortes Bank, which has no height limit. Laird Hamilton or Brett Lickle claimed to have ridden a wave "better than ten stories" which means a wave over 100 feet tall, at "Egypt" on the north shore of Maui on 12-3-2007. That would be the biggest wave ever surfed. It was not photographed and therefore not officially recognized. That day Brett Lickle was nearly killed when he and Laird were overtaken by a wave moving faster than their jet skis at 55 mph, and Brett's leg was badly lacerated. This is according to the book "Ghost Wave" by Chris Dixon.
