Big Wave Surfing

For those of you who are fans of surfing, we don’t have to explain what this means, but the others who are not much into that sport, big wave surfing is the ultimate celebration of extreme surfing. For this kind of surfing you must be very skilled and brave, because you are challenging deadly waves in harsh weather and we all know how ocean conditions can be rough, so for this you need a serious approach.

When it comes to big wave surfers, they are not much interested in the performance, such as cutbacks or breathless aerial antics. They simply want to challenge themselves, to see if they are capable of doing such thing. Normally fear is always present, because you are doing very serious thing, and you never know what is going to happen or how it is going to break. You can be a professional, you can be the best, but big waves are lethal even for the most experienced riders, and unfortunately a lot of them have lost their lives while doing this extreme sport.

The most common causes of death are drowning and severe coral injuries, and some of the most talented surfers have died, such as : Mark Foo, Donnie Solomon, Peter Davi, Todd Chesser and many others. Maybe the most famous person when it comes to big wave surfing is Laird Hamilton. He is the first professional big wave surfer. In 2000, Hamilton surfs the heaviest wave of all time, or at least many people think that way.
