The most Dangerous Surf Photo ever shot – Taj Burrows by Marc Mathews at the Right

The idea was brilliant. Send two surfers – one of the world’s best in big waves, and one of the world’s best all-around – for a massive swell at an incredibly dangerous surf spot, get them to catch the same wave, shoot a photo and you’re done. Just like that, you’ve got the most interesting — and coincidentally, the most dangerous — surf image ever taken. On Friday, August 1st, a photo that had to that point only been a dream, suddenly turned to reality.
