to give you an idea how tall the waves are, a windsurfing mast is about 15
feet.  In the beginning there is a guy on with a pink sail on a 3x mast high
wave (so it is about 45' high).  That was probably Robbie Nash .... a 13
time world champion at Jaws in Maui.

No that's Anders Bringdal (S10).
If you crank it up really loud, you can hear him say "&^E%$!!" in Swedish.
