i surfed 7 foot (Hawaiian, which means like 14 foot sets) honalua. It was too perfect!!1 not only that, but it was a freak north swell in the middle of the summer, and i surfed it with only about 15 people out. Biggest longest most perfect waves you have ever seen. I was talking to a few guys that had grown up there, and they said that this was probably the best session they ever surfed there, cause the waves were pumping and literally no one was there.That wave is sooo long and has straight up barrel sections, it just makes me wanna jizz just thinking about that session, nothing has ever even come anything near close to that. But i caught a wave at boilers one time a while back that had to have been at least 12 foot, it broke past the boiler and was super super heavy. Those waves at honalua though were just so perfect though that it wasnt even scary, just so perfect huge!!!!!

WB: C-street and Mase and Sweetwater and all sorts of chill places around WB. Its rad.
last fall I was out for some T00BZ WITH THE BOYZ from the FORCE at mase. in between bashin kooks and dishin out my gnarly wisdom, i snagged about two dozen double overhead BARRELZZ and got so totally pitted. and i was surfing inside. my boy BIG RAYMOND had his rhino chaser out the back and was pulling in some tasty quadruple overhead cleanups.
so many UNCW BROS out though, i was rather distracted since i had to lay down the law for some of those jerzzzey dweebs several times.
Back in the day when hurricane swells would actually become extra tropical and make their way up the East Coast and certain Long Island spots would light up with DOH to 12 feet (this was a long time ago, obviously LOL) - that was the biggest I've ever been out in.
I'm way too old now. I just sit back and watch the rest of ya'll fight it out when it starts closing out at 8 feet and be all jealous-like that I'm not battling closeouts.
However, the year with Ernesto was sweeet - what was that, 2006? I was in the HOSPITAL for that one for a few weeks, doing a lot of mind surfing.
Head high is my maximum - my broken neck/back can't take it.
Josh, if you were a kid out in 17 foot waves, good on ya, braddah.
