    Overhead. I don't know if I could handle double overhead, but I'd be willing to try as long as I could make the paddle out.

    Double over head

    The Cove

    During Hurrican Cindy in 2001

    There must have been 200+ people out from Head Quarters all the way down to The Cove

    Indicator: 22-25 ft (2005) - super fun. Huge. Crazy lineup clearing rouges
    The Cove: 20ft (2010) - awesome. Easiest big wave i know of to surf. Huge channel next to it
    Calafia: 15 ft, 2004 - fu**ing nuts. A death trap in the pacific.

    fifteen ft.... a couple times. that's doh plus... in pr and here, believe it or not. Grew up in Cape May, and never surfed anything that big until I moved up here. The surf here in Monmouth county is much bigger and more powerful, in general. But the surf in Cape May county is much more performance oriented. It's generally cleaner and softer, and much more ripable. Up here it's bigger and more barreling. sometimes it's not about how big. It's about how good. size is just a plus.

    hahahahahahaha

    on a more serious note:

    I've probably surfed a couple 10 footers (DOH in my books) in the 5 years or so ive been surfing. I watched people surf 20ft+ Mavs (from the beach) but there is no chance in hell I would ever paddle out there!!! if anyone on this forum would ever have the balls to surf Mavericks, I would be very surprised and almost call them a liar! hahaha

    The fact that I surf Wrightsville Beach and don't have a license yet means the biggest wave i've surfed was maybe 7-8 ft. But definitely nothing bigger than 9.
