Artist's Description

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.

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.
