Surfer was towed into this wave at Mavericks on 10-28-1999 on a day called "Morning of the Monsters" by Surfing magazine. This was the first time surfers towed into giant waves at Mavericks, near San Francisco, CA. This was generally accepted as biggest wave surfed in the state of California, about 60 feet or more, until Carlos Burle's 68-footer at Mavericks in 2001. Peter Mel is 6'2". This is my first painting of this wave, see also the second one in a portrait format. This wave appears in the surf video "Year of the Drag-In". If anyone knows how to obtain a DVD of "Year of the Drag-In" please contact me. I've been searching for a copy.
