“This is a very exciting event and to our knowledge it is largest wave ever recorded in the southern hemisphere. Indeed, surfers in California can expect energy from this storm to arrive at their shores in about a week’s time,” Durrant said, reported “It is quite possible, even probable, that there were much higher waves during this storm.”; Photo credit: Getty Images/Mathieu Rivrin
