I loved the last scene in the movie "Point Break." "He isn't coming back." This wave definitely fits the bill, and the guy made it!

100 ft is a nice number for the newspapers, but it'll probably be officially recorded at around 80 feet.

Still pretty darn big.

Big wave surfer Derrick Doerner had to do about 5 takes and wipe out on purpose at Waimea Bay to film that scene.

Wonder how big the waves are on Uranus?/sarc/tagline ref
