The biggest wave ever paddled into?

Its a given amongst big wave riders is that there is a limit to the size of wave that can be paddled into by human power alone (hence the introduction of jet skis and tow surfing), however that actual height limit has never been determined exactly....its certainly in the 30ft+ range. Having watched this film of Dorian and Healey surfing Waimea on Dec 7th 2009, the massive swell which hit the North Shore and kicked started the Eddie a day later, I think these lads have just about found the limit! How big do you think this wave was? judge for yourself...

Northshore Tow-In championships kick off today

The "Keep the ocean Blue" Northshore tow-in event is to start its holding period today. Contest Director Alec Cooke (Ace Cool) has posted a go alert for the competition to start 8 am Wednesday Morning.There is only a one percent possibility of a change of plan. Forecasters are looking at 15-18 foot swells and 36 foot wave faces to pound the outer reef areas. The swell is solid and the conditions are so good that it can't be passed on.

The primary outer reef locations for the Tow-in and paddle heats are to be Avalanche and Outside Haleiwa harbour
