Artist's Description

Greg Noll paddled into this wave at Makaha, Oahu, on 12-4-69, the day Waimea closed out. This is my artist-conception scale of what that wave might have looked, exactly based on Larry Goddard's famous photo of another wave that had Greg's board frozen in the lip that appeared in the LA Times. I was told that Greg actually lost his board just before that wave, but it fortunately popped back within his reach so he could retrieve it and continue paddling out. This is a water-angle view.

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...
