This isn`t fake. The surfers name is Laird Hamilton and he`s arguably the best big wave surfer in the world. You can find ou more about him here:

Laird Hamilton built custom boards for waves like this. There is a big anchor type fin that elevates the board a couple feet out of the water. That`s how he stabalizes and maintains that kind of speed. It`s the same type of board he uses in the James Bond movie.

i dont think its fake, when the wave breaks, that looks real to me, i just think that the beggining is made to make the wave look bigger than it really was, even tho it was still really really big

OK, I`m pretty sure this is real. Like loadsa people before have said, this looks like that wave that hits Hawaii once every few years. If you watch James Bond: Die Another Day, you`ll see surfers doing exactly the same at the beginning. No stunts, no CGI, it`s all for real. Just cos something`s properly impressive doesn`t mean it`s fake. Drop the unnecessary cynicism guys!

Correct me if I`m wrong, but I think the jet-skis are also there to give them their initial momentum down the wave. You can`t exactly paddle into one of those bad boys.

Lol @ the amount of ppl that havent seen a real wave!!! I can surf (albeit not at a pro level) but there are waves that are bigger than that you know. I saw a documentary aswell and it happens once every like 3 years when there are waves at hawaii that are flipping huge. nuff sed.

it`s not fake....I recognize it from a documentary....wish I could remember the name of it!
These guys flew out by helicopter to a storm off the coast of Hawaii to surf those monster waves...the jet skiers are there to pick them up if they get knocked out by the waves, which eventually happened to one of them. The helicopter guy was freaking out the whole time, "You guys are nuts! I don`t even like flying in this sh**!"

*sigh*

You`re more likely to get hit by lightning repeatedly than bitten by a shark.
"Gnarly".
I don`t believe it`s being shot from a helicopter.
And, finally, that`s definitely not a tsunami.

Ok, so I`m not the only one who thought it could be fake.
And what is the huge deal about posting first and saying:
"FIRST"
With no other comment... It`s pretty dumb.

cool but i think it could be fake. why cahnt we here the helicopter? even if the mic was on the surfer, we`d still hear the chopper.

so if it is real, it`s been edited. cool vid tho. even if a little old
