Artist's Description

Surfer was towed into this wave at Mavericks on 10-28-99. It was generally accepted as the biggest wave ridden in the state of California at that time, until Carlos Burle's 68 foot wave in 2001. This wave never had an official height estimate that I know of. My guess, without careful analysis, is over 60 foot. The surfer, Peter Mel, is 6'2" tall. Does this wave look about 10 or 11 times overhead? Keep in mind this painting is based on a water-angle shot, true to scale, from a jet ski. That makes the wave look smaller than it really was. The crest of the wave is located 60 feet higher than the camera, and about that far behind the surfer which foreshortens the crest. The head-high scale is the vertical line drawn from the highest point of the crest to the level of the trough. This scale is located behind the surfer by maybe 50 or 60 feet.

These are true-to-scale paintings of the biggest waves ever surfed in high definition. Some are imaginary reconstructions of actual events, such as Ken at Log Cabins on "Biggest Wednesday", and Greg Noll at Makaha. There were no photos taken of their historic rides. Others are from sketches I made from viral videos and photos. All surfer and photographer names are available on request. The Mike Parsons wave painting is based on the original photograph by Robert Brown but with a unique view of the trough. There IS NO photograph of Ken Bradshaw's biggest wave. 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...
