Biggest Waves | Top 10

We often get asked: “What are the biggest waves?”, or “What’s the gnarliest wave out there?”. Truth be told, it’s all a matter of perspective. It depends who you ask. Some waves are deadlier, but also far more consistent or get surfed by a lot more people. Some waves are so remote and ‘secret’ that we probably haven’t seen them ridden on the biggest swells yet. But what we can tell for sure is that all of these waves are mother nature at its finest. Surfing has evolved, our equipment has evolved, but the waves are still the same, and probably always will. So with no further ado, we bring you the 10 biggest waves in random order, or better said just 10 kick ass these waves scare me shitless videos.
