This is what a thirty-foot wave looks like, according to a wide-angle POV camera.
As previously written, twice, there will be no bad things said about Kai Lenny, the daring twenty-eight-year-old multi-discipline surfer from Maui with sea-spray eyes shaped like pecans, skin the colour of buttered cocoa and lips as red as if he’d just applied a fresh coat of pomegranate lipstick.
His legend just grows and grows and grows.
Yesterday, at twenty-to-thirty-foot Mavericks, Kai again used the power of GoPro to record his session, the wide-angle lens reducing the giant waves to something a child might ride during the “cruiser” session at a wave park.
The highlight, I think, is the shadow the waves cast on the lineup just before they arrive.
