Seen here is a menacing looking wave off the coast of Todos Santos Island in Ensenada, Mexico. The wave was one of many big waves spotted at the Todos Santos Big Wave Event on February 28, 2010. The Big Wave Event was an invitational that featured 24 of the top big wave surfers. It was organized by renowned surfer Gary Linden and won by Mark Healey.

According to The Big Wave Blog:

Todos Santos is an impressive rock and sand beach break on a little island located off the coast of the northern end of Baja California, Mexico. This wave is usually at least two to four feet bigger than the other Baja breaks lining the peninsula, and is completely capable of handling waves as big as 60 feet. The best known break on this island and probably in the area is called ‘Killers‘.


The event above took place at ‘killers’ and was captured by photographer Nathan Gibbs. You can see the entire series on Flickr and at his blog.
