If you put someone out there and could see that wave break to scale it might actually be solid double overhead, maybe bigger. What looks like one crumbly section might be 15 to 20 feet long. Throw 2 of those crumbly sections together and you have almost 40 feet of wave face breaking in less than a second. That's pretty fast and might be hard to beat if the wave is kinda round and hard to pump for speed.

I can say this, if I pulled up and saw those conditions even if there was a lull between sets that would allow me to break through I wouldn't go out. Call me a wimp if you want but experience tells me that on a day like that scary things can happen.

Lots of places on the EC can hold large waves. This is Holden Beach NC during Hurricane Earl swell.

Ok, video worked...my post may not be relevant because I am speaking for mid-Atlantic.
I still can't get over the fact that Herlihy and Raven rode those, but that was only possible with a ski...you can even see how even with the momuntem from the ski there's a couple where he still can't get into because of those stiff offshores.
