There’s a reason Half Moon Bay wasn’t surfed for so many years until Jeff Clark. It’s cold, littered with boulders the size of 747s and at times can be one of the largest waves firing on the planet.
I’m willing to bet these guys were fully prepared for the conditions showcased in the video. And the “rogue wave” comment by the CNN news bunny is just plain nonsense. Sure sounds big and scary, though huh? I just hope the guy who got dumped is alright. He was lucky.
