Skiing Big Waves, Chuck Patterson at Jaws

Watermen continue to flock to Jaws to push the limits of surfing. A few weeks ago, we posted a video of Mark Visser catching a 30-footer at night. Now, Salomon Freeski TV has put out this short of Chuck Patterson towing into Jaws on skis.

"I don't want this to be looked at as a circus act, because ever since I started I was hooked like a little kid," says Patterson. "Just like I was when I started snowskiing—so there's something like that that keeps me going."
