A very brave man being completely eaten by an incredibly perfect barrel. Go to Surfline and watch the video.

So the Billabong Pro at J-Bay, which is happening but not really happening, has been well and truly upstaged by the biggest swell in living memory to hit one of the world’s most perfect reefs.

Cloudbreak in Fiji was the location, and when Kelly Slater saw how good it looked, he pretty much forgot about competing in South Africa and jumped on a plane.

We don’t really have too much to say about this here video. We’ve just watched it and we’re still a little stunned. Just … I don’t know. Tell me you’ve ever seen bigger, more perfect waves. This actually happened.
