The surfer was towed into this wave at Cortes Bank on the historic 1-05-2008 expedition. This wave is probably over 60 feet high. It is hard to tell from this very low camera angle, maybe even lower than the surfer, which makes the wave look smaller than it really was, by foreshortening the crest. This photo appears on the cover of the book "Ghost Wave" by Chris Dixon. The surfer is Grant Baker who is 5'11" tall, in case you want to analyze the wave height.
