Storm Surfing Could Just About Be The Most Dangerous Sport In The World

Would you risk life and limb to ride the perfect storm?

When big wave surfer Shane Dorian describes a wave as “a monster”, then you know it’s gonna be pretty huge.

Check out this insane session at Waimea Bay in December 2009. Dorian was joined by fellow surfer Mark Healey on the wave as El Niño bought a huge bout of stormy weather to the Hawaiian islands.

The result is some extraordinary conditions and incredible footage Apparently you could see the monster sets building for three minutes before the waves actually broke!
