Plain and simple, surfing big waves like the one at Jaws looks pretty difficult. We recently had a debate in the office over which discipline is more dangerous; big mountain skiing or big wave surfing. Surprisingly, the majority of TGR employees felt that big wave surfing is much harder. This video from Take Shelter Productions features some of the best big wave surfers in the world including Ryan Hipwood and Shane Dorian among others. For every "Jaw" dropping line (pun intended) there is an equally gnarly crash and wipe out.
What do you think is more dangerous? Big wave surfing or big mountain skiing? Be sure to keep the following video in mind.
