Consider this an early Christmas present (for you, not for these surfers). History was made at the famed big wave spot Jaws (aka Pe'ahi) off the island of Maui earlier this December when they held the first-ever Pe'ahi Challenge. The first paddle-in surf contest at the treacherous Jaws, it certainly lived up to the hype. And when waves were pushing 60-foot, well you know there was bound to be a wipeouts compilation at some point.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water
Well, Jamie O'Brien and Kalani Chapman are
As close as you'll get to the famed big wave break
This is what happens when you imitate Jamie O'Brien
Airs and Jaws are just a normal day for Meola
