I've spent less than a handful of hours actually surfing, but I have been snowboarding and skateboarding for a couple decades now, so it's fair to say that I have a natural affinity for board sports.

I spend a portion of my work day surfing (puns ftw!) the web finding interesting stories and subjects to write about (yup, I'm a professional web browser) and came across a set of surfing photos that very nearly made my jaw drop.

I've seen a lot of photos of big waves ,but I don't think I've ever seen waves so big that they have their own waves. Click over to check out this absolutely insane collection of photos of surfers riding stories-tall monster waves.

They are epic, and so worth the click.
