Surfing: How big is that wave?

From an old issue of Status magazine, this first spread is a smart way to indicate the relative height of a wave by comparing it to a 6-story building, a tree, and person holding an umbrella—well you don’t want to get wet with all this surf everywhere do you?

There’s another comparison on the right side of the second spread that references Japanese artists Hokusai’s famous wave painting.

If you want to see some truly awe-inspiring extreme sport, search for videos of the surfers at Cortez Bank.
