Riding Monster Waves

This BBC video of a monster wave was filmed off the coast of Pohnpei in the Caroline Islands, part of the Federated State of Micronesia. The location is well known in the international surf community. Some of the biggest waves in the world break on South Pacific islands. The storm swells that create these waves travel more than 5,000km to break on their shorelines.
