Not Just No, But Hell No: The Biggest Wave Ever Surfed - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

I'm impressed. I am truly impressed by the accomplishment.

A Brit has, it appears, set a new record for the largest wave ever surfed.

What I always wonder when I read stories, such as this, is whether it's a show of bravery or of foolishness to attempt such a remarkable feat. God instilled in us an adventurous spirit, but how carelessly are we allowed to pursue it?

A few weeks ago I posted a video of a monster water slide which I'd hop on in a minute, but this... THIS.... just looks crazy. What sane person paddles out to greet an 80' wave?

So, how far would you go for adventure? What wouldn't you do, even on a dare?

What has, thus far, been your greatest risk-taking adventure?
