I'd say chest-head.
1, hes not at the bottom of the wave, close but about 1/2'-1' up.
2, the wave already broke, so it was higher at one point.
3, its over his head... but he is bending and at an angle.
I know there is no small amount of controversy about wave height. One guy's six foot wave is four feet to another guy. Chest high for some of us is overhead for others.
Can we all agree this wave from this morning in downtown Ocean City Maryland, was head high?
thats a funny shot, and looks like maybe it was bigger before it closed out, but no one i know would call that wave over chest high..
most people i know would call the wave below head high. this reason being its overhead on the drop, but probably will be only chest high by the time he gets a chance to do a turn or two. So kind of the wave is head high overall.
