“When the wave stands up so tall behind you, it erases the sunlight… and that’s when the shadow overtakes you.
“It’s the Monster behind you… you’re very close to the Danger Zone.”
Welcome to Nic Von Rupp’s world.
The 30-year-old surfing prodigy has already clocked a successful competitive career and changed direction to focus his sights on becoming the best big wave rider in the world.
For the uninitiated it is a sight to behold, waves that could dwarf apartment buildings; speeds in excess of 80km/h; the full force of the ocean harnessed in wave form.
Yet Rupp stares it all down with a relaxed stance and a sunbathed smile, and hours and hours of preparation.
Don’t just take our word for it; Come With Us on a big wave ride like you’ve never seen before….
