big wave surfed


BREAKING NEWS: 100-FOOT WAVE SURFEDUnknown South American Chargers First To Conquer Chilean Monster Waveby Jason VasquezSurferMag.com Correspondent
//


Check back in a few hours for video of the 100-foot wave.
Details are still a bit blurry, but according to eye-witness accounts, two unknown South American big-wave hellions have broken the 100-foot barrier, catching and surfing a sky-scraper-size wave off the coast of Chile’s Isla Alejandra Selkirk, several hundred miles off the coast of mainland Chile.
SURFER received the breaking news via satellite phone from a local Arica photographer, who accompanied the big-wave duo deep into the Pacific in hopes of scoring waves on what he called “Chile’s Cortes Bank.” The photographer was shell-shocked but managed to upload the accompanying photo of the two dropping in on the monster cold-water right-hander before stormy conditions terminated his sat-phone connection.

A building ten stories up would be 100'. That wave is not the size of a ten story building, unless
that's Haw'n style. Eh' Moke, why you no put S in front you name, blahlah?

Using my Adobe Engineering software which uses a single frame three dimensional size equivalency calculator, I have determined that wave to be between 65 and 67 feet.

A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check tickets.
As Murphy approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened his trench coat and flashed her.
Without missing a beat....she said, "Sir, I need to see your ticket not your stub."

Cubesteak/Tubesteak is not a lonely person. He has no use for Facebook. He is my nephew. He would rather be in Pennysaver any day. He is not on Facebook, he is not in the SOSC either
