Check out pro surfer Makua Rothman successfully ride a wave that was estimated to be about 100 feet tall in Hawaii on Saturday..
quote:

when Rothman and some of the rest of the country's best big wave surfers hit up a famous area known as "Jaws" in Pe'ahi to tackle some gnarly swells.

At some point during the day, though, Rothman beat out the other surfers to catch a Holy Grail type of ocean ride -- tackling a wave that was estimated to be between 80 and 100 feet high!!

Surf industry officials close to Rothman tell TMZ Sports the wave might very well be the tallest ever surfed -- beating Rothman's previous record of around 66 feet.

Since when did surfers start strapping their feet to their boards? Would not that be more like skiing?

Maybe they mean 100' from the bottom of the ocean. That is not 100' from water level.

Waves are measured trough to crest. Watch the video again and at the beginning of the wave before it breaks you can get a sense of how tall the wave is by how tiny the surfer looks. When the wave starts breaking it does get smaller but that's what happens when waves break.
