A monster wave at one of Australia’s most famous surf spots has shocked even the most hardcore surfers – and only the bravest would ever dare to enter.
Reputed to be one of the world’s heaviest and most dangerous waves, The Right is located off the south coast of Western Australia, near Walpole.
Photographer Matt McDonald snapped a photo of the savage break as two people on a jet ski watched in awe.

Storms along the Western Australia coastline formed the massive swell, originating from massive swells in the lower latitudes of the Southern Ocean.
The wave reached up to nine meters above sea level and jet skis were used to tow surfers brave enough to brave the gigantic waves.
Professional surfer Zac Haynes said to the ABC that the Right had been quiet so far this year, but this breakup was a matter of life and death.
“It feels like being hit by a truck when you get dumped,” said Mr Haynes.

“You won’t get beginners there — it’s not a place you want to be if you don’t know what you’re doing.
“It can be life and death.”
Sharp surfers responded to the post, stunned by the size of the wave.
“Dude, that’s a real monster. But beautiful at the same time. Respect,” one user wrote.
“That ‘thing’ looks like the mouth of an angry monster ready to crack the bones of a cheeky little surfer willing to take it,” added another.
