    I know Oz has some classic slabs like OUR's, Cow Bombie, The Right, etc. But this is kinda crazy. Don't call me stupid if it is photoshop, because it looks pretty real to me. tn_Untitled-21.jpg tn_Untitled-32.jpg tn_Untitled-6.jpg

    Don't forget Shark Island, Cyclops, Shippies(Tas)...looks real to me also...some mutant waves over there, Australians are nuts, in a good way.

    that is the heaviest wave I've ever seen if it's real.

    It might have been taken at a funky angle though

    Not nearly as big, but just as sketchy...from Tazmania Michael-Hoult.jpg

    where'd you find those? the lighting discrepancies and color variation make it look almost undeniably photoshopped. also- if you look closely, you can see the line where they blended the two images very poorly together...and the size of the foam of the white water doesn't match the size scale of the wind chop on the rest of the water.... the 3rd one almost looks real but still a little off

    Looks like a Normal day at #belmar,nj

    Seriously- it looks like a 3 inch wave breaking on sand ...

    If you look up "cyclops Australia wave" it looks almost the exact same

    Upon second inspection. I definitely think these are photoshopped. There is no way there is that much water stacked up behind the wave.

    Aerial angles give you a better picture of the swell thickness. water angles mostly show vertical drop and heaviness.

    Dudes this wave is totally a 3inch shore break

    Just look at the way the light reflects off the water and the chop

    Even if it was real - I wouldn't want to surf it...
