Well paddle hard, you have to be in a great condition, also mentally, and hold on to your b@alls because you might just loose them.
Well heaviest lip around, breaks on top of a sunken boat, you could probably call it artificial, be careful no one knows exactly what's underneath the wave.
Heavy, out there for the brave.
