1. I have hung around, watched surfers my whole life. This is straight up insane, yet awe inspiring.

3. How big is that wave?

Anyone know? I went to the link. Nothing there.

That is one of the most frightening waves I've ever seen.

15. Same here

From the still I thought it was going to be lightning striking that red building. Started the vid and thought it was a hail storm, then crazy dive bombing birds, then maybe a meteor that had disintegrated.

Finally read the text of the tweet and said Holy shit!!

11. They used to close the beaches sometimes on the North Shore

because of the surf when I lived there. If you approached within a few blocks you could feel the earth shake. Surf like that can be impressive beyond description.

17. When I lived in N CA waves could get up to 70 feet at Mavericks ...

... down the coast in Half Moon Bay, but 80 feet is really crazy.
