It looks like the wave from an end of the world movie.

I think it is a little...A lot of the waves in this video look huge, but as they end it often looks like the surfer is suddenly surfing flat water. The different perspectives help.

I'm just glad Keanu Reeves waited until after to arrest him.

I wanted to see how it ended, so in that regard, I'm a little disappointed. Still an awesome gif though!

Big wave surfers often wear c02 inflatable vests so they don’t get held down https://web.archive.org/web/20180811202920/http://towsurfer.com/2017/04/inflatable-vests/

Not sure, but it looks like you could drown unless you can hold your breath for 5 minutes.

When you see the jetskis behind the wave it really changes your sense of scale. It looks like it's even bigger because you can't see the guy because he blends into the ocean. It looks like the perspective is from pretty high up and very far away.

Yep, came here to say it only looks so big because you can't see the surfer and naturally presume it's because he's too tiny to see.

I looked at it a few more times and now I see the jetski. I think what happened is you can't see the the surfer because he blends in with the wave, so it looks like he is really tiny, thereby making the wave look really huge.
