Red Bull Surfing Videos - Peaking: Peter Mel
Follow Peter Mel throughout the premier big wave contest, the Mavericks Invitational.
Big wave surfers are different. Different from the average surfer. What they seek is a feeling few, if any, of us who call ourselves surfers will ever know.
And they risk life and limb chasing it. But they’re not crazy. If anything, they’re the complete opposite. Big wave surfers are calculated risk takers. And with so much at stake, they should be. Theirs is a world few outside of their big wave bretheren understand, and their perspective on life, living, winning and losing and surfing is as unique as the waves they ride.
