Watch This Surfer Paddle Into The Biggest Wave Ever At ‘Jaws’ In Maui

Last week a Hawaiian surfer named Aaron Gold paddled into a wave that many in the surfing community are calling “the biggest wave ever paddled into at Jaws,” the famous surf break in Maui. The wave itself is a MONSTER — Surfer Today says the swell was over 50 feet.

You can see the record-setting wave at the 3:20 mark in the video. Here’s what he told Surfer Today about the drop:

“[It was] Definitely one of longest drops I feel like I’ve ever had. It just kept going. I was like, ‘ok, I’m coming down,’ and where I thought it would end, it had a whole other section to it,” explained Aaron Gold.

“It felt big. It was my first wave, I’d just got out there, and I was like, oh, I’ll catch a small warm up. So, sometimes it just finds you. I still want to ride the biggest wave in the world. I don’t think that’s it by far yet. I really feel there’s another level.”
