Does have a bit of a point the vid looks suspect or maby even dated or taken from a different part of the beach.. the actual footage from recent days may look more impressive.. either way.. its still big game. here's a photo from Baleixo Photography from monday.. i.e. thats not my photo.. the others previously posted by me are. How many surfers can you stack.. :)

Last I checked the germans were saying 34m, next thing we know we'll be at 50m.. anyways, personally I'd rather look at it for the actual phenomenon instead of thinking of it as a Guinness world book of records checkbox item.

Re read the post before you start flexing your keyboard muscles. Your reading comprehension is lacking.
