Aaron Gold, big wave surfer, rode what some say is the biggest wave ever paddled into, at Pe'ahi Jaws, Hawaii.

Jan 15, 2016, Aaron paddled out to what he thought would be a practice wave, but like he said, "The wave came to me. Sometimes it finds you".

Aaron continue, "I just kept going, it had a whole other section to it... I got cycled pretty deep, got drug a couple hundred yards. I was able to get up, no problem, it's fine."
