Aaron Gold may not be a household name in the world of surf, but that’s going to change here real soon. Today at Pe’ahi, the underground hellman threw himself into what has undoubtedly been deemed the biggest wave ever paddled into at Jaws, and pretty much anywhere for that matter. Disagree if you will, but the above sequence speaks for its self. It takes a true lunatic to put themselves over the ledge of a beast like this, and we’re just glad that Gold is in one piece to talk about it. You could call him a daredevil, you could call him a legend, but right now, you probably won’t be able to call him at all because he turned off his phone due to the mass amount of love coming in.

Arron Gold, we salute you.
