The surfer was towed into this wave at Jaws, Maui, on 1-10-04. I believe this to be a water-angle shot, but I'm not sure. It looks like a low camera angle. This wave was judged by the Billabong XXL as 70 feet high, the biggest wave surfed that year. Congrats to Pete Cabrinha who I heard is 5'10" tall. I try to give you the surfer's height so you can analyze the photo yourself, and make your own estimate of wave height.
