This might be the prettiest footage of surfing giant Maverick's we've ever seen

Maverick's, in Half Moon Bay, California, is one of the surfing's most menacing and dangerous big waves.
This edit shows exactly why.

Just 20 minutes south of San Francisco, and 1/2 mile offshore from Pillar Point Harbor, Maverick’s rises from the wintery horizon to form perfect, massive waves that reach up to 60 feet. 

...exploding with such ferocity that it can be recorded on the Richter scale.
