This certainly takes a bit of guts!!


It's perhaps not surprising that surfers have a reputation for daring that borders on madness - always pushing themselves and the boundaries of their sport in search of the biggest wave, the most thrilling run.
But big-wave rider Mark Visser has now taken the sport into new territory after he took on 30ft monster waves off Maui - in pitch darkness.

Mark Visser is amazing. Not sure how it applies to ATS - but, surfing is one of my most favorite things of all time, so you've got my s+f!

Rad video. I've been surfing at night before, but the waves were 4-10 feet face side haha. So props to Visser. 30 ft. waves.. that would be great to see in person.



The surf break, a deep water reef break, is called "Jaws" due to the size and ferocity of the waves. The waves at "Jaws" can reach heights of 120 ft (36.6 m) on the face of the wave, moving as fast as 30 mph (48.3 km/h) Wiki
