Ooohh! Big wide set with no breaks!
Pro driver caught out but nerves of steel, big balls, using the surfing line and power saves the day. Pretty damm cool/lucky! Probably a surfer as well.

Quite a blast, particularly if it's not your boat. But why would you sit high on the face of it? Too shallow in the trough? Don't think so. Better view? Because there's a camera?
Whenever I've been amidst breakers where I've been a bit scared I've sat in the trough, crossing it longitudinally, quite quickly.
