Personally  speaking watching this while sitting some 150 miles inland from an ocean my toes curled on their own, hopefully not for too long! lol

Yea it looks more radical to me  than the very incredible break in Tahiti called Teahupoo!   Also using the words "best wipeouts" on the title page is kind of strange to me since a best wipeout (or best outcome) would be a mitigated one in my book, while most of the ones shown are not mitigated! 

 

If "God' was these waves who would dare a ride? 

 

I know that sometimes a surfer can get in a zone inside the curl of a wave where the power of the ocean is rushing around or at them and thus they must find and travel on a razors edge to keep from wiping out,  yet in that same moment they can feel and act with a perfectly harmonious, timeless and fearless awe that overcomes any hesitation.
