You’ll Probably Never Get Closer to Big-Wave Surfing Than This

Big-wave surfing is an endeavour that most people never have a chance to even get close to. We rely on contests and short videos to try to understand what it would be like to ride these behemoths, but it is almost impossible to comprehend. Which is why we can appreciate this unbelievable footage, perfectly set to a slow piano tune. Merry Christmas, this visual poetry is a gift from us to you. —ML
