The Biggest Wave

….ever paddled into, allegedly.

I don’t know about that (although I have no reason to disbelieve surfingmagazinedotcom); I just liked the photos:


There are another 23 of them in the sequence, showing Cape Town’s Matt “Bromdog” Bromley riding the wave in question and then getting thoroughly mashed by the wave in question and its mates here. So go and look.

Incidentally, for scale, “Bromdog” is 6’4″ (193cm). So yes, that is a big wave. Kudos to him for surfing it. Fewer kudos for the nickname though, because taking the first four letters of your surname and adding an animal doesn’t work every time.

I should know. I’ve tried it.

Until next time,
Six “Thoubeagle” Thousand.
