Tao Berman, decided to take on tow-in surfing to become the first kayaker to tackle some monster 40 foot faces in a surf kayak. (Looked like a Murky Waters Reaction) Tao is the veteran of many daring white water feats, including the tackling the world’s highest waterfall in a kayak. Is this the largest wave ever tackled in a surf kayak? Maybe? It is impressive for its bravado, if nothing else. Looking at the spec of a surf kayak on the face of a monster forty foot wave gives me chills.
