  1. Riding a record-breaking wave is an amazing feat! What are your thoughts on the surfers who are up for this challenge?

  2. Big wave surfers are a small, intense group of elite athletes. Amazing! (Although I prefer the purity of paddle-in vs tow-in surfing.)

  3. Surfers are crazy people. They live for waves like this & would be more than happy to die trying to surf them. This was awesome but stupid.
