Wax on Panel

120 x 51cm

Absolute searching, absolute energy and absolute power. On par with the likes of Teahupo’o in Tahiti or Pe’ahi in Maui, Aileen’s, which sits just a little more than 3km from shore, can produce waves as tall as 12m that pitch forward into monstrous barrels weighing more than 400 tons at the falling lip – no mean feat even for the most experienced big wave surfer.
