Everyone to their own opinion - Both of these waves are incredible in there own right, each wave has its differences of course but in my own opinion dungeons scares the shit out of me just looking at it i mean this spot holds twice the size than the famous shark island, im sure on big swell a hold down would be twice as long and twice as powerful to. But don’t get me wrong as Shark island can be a very unforgiving wave but it wouldn’t be compared to say Mavericks or jaws where as dungeons could be due to its sheer size and power, but at the end of the day its just my opinion and if you surf either break i would take my hat of to you.

show respect for waves - I agree with the Duke, It don't matter which of these waves is more hardcore. You better show a great respect for either one or you're gonna wind up getting killed! Arguing about which wave has more "picturesque barrels" or which could be more "hardcore" is irrelevant because if you fail to show either wave the respect it deserves you'll be in shitload of trouble

- Hey, Shark island by unsigned...Don't you be an idiot. Just because someone has a different opinion than you about waves does not make them a fuckin idiot. Both are excellent and powerful waves that are world class. I agree they are hard to compare because they are so different, but they should both still be respected for what they are
