OT: Surf's Up!

There's been no wind in Maui for the last few days, but the surf has been kinda big...

I scanned this from the front page of this morning's Maui newspaper.

My company has been filming at Jaws yesterday & today. We have a cameraman in a heli, and another in a boat. For the guy in the boat it's his first time filming surfing. He practically had a heart attack on day one.

Wow...What a trip!
I'm always amazed by big waves...

I wonder why they're so big when the wind is down.
Is there a big storm approaching?
