Surfing the Giants at Jaws: 68 Foot Monster

Jaws located on Maui, is one of the most dangerous surfing locations in the world. This kind of surfng is not for everyone. Professional surfers know they are taking their life in their hands when they attempt to surf these giants.

The waves are so massive that the only way to catch them is by being towed by a jet ski or by being brought out to the surf spot by a helicopter.

Tow-In surfer Dan Moore talks about Oahu’s legendary North Shore and how he surfed a monster 68-foot wave at Peahi (Jaws) on Maui.

He explains Jaws was "like a monster chasing me down. The power and the energy there is nothing like it…"

 

 Dan also states" it’s a humbling experience.You almost feel as if you’ve cheated death a bit. The modern surfers of today owe a big debt to the surfers of the past."

If you are ready to start surfing, you may want to start out with one of these surfbosrds:

A reviewer said: "This is it, the definitive story of surfing, surfers and beach culture.
It’s a big thick textbook like collection of information, photos, stories and anecdotes.
Warshaw has set the bar so high with this work, I doubt anyone will ever have the balls to approach the subject again…."
