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 drop in.
The Right, which has a reputation for being one of the world’s heaviest and most dangerous swells, is located off the south coast of Western Australia, near Walpole.
Photographer Matt McDonald snapped a picture of the ferocious break, as two people on a jet ski looked on in awe.

Storms across the Western Australia coastline formed the huge swells, coming from huge swells in the lower latitudes of the Southern Ocean.
The wave reached up to nine metres above sea level and jet-skis were used to tow surfers brave enough to take on the mammoth waves.
Professional surfer Zac Haynes said to the ABC that The Right had been quiet so far this year, but this break was a matter of life and death.
‘It feels like you get hit by a truck if you’re dumped,’ Mr Haynes said.

‘You don’t get any beginners out 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.’
Keen surfers commented on the post, bewildered by the size of the wave.
‘Dude that’s a true monster. But beautiful at the same time. Respect,’ one user wrote.
‘That ‘thing’ looks like an angry monster’s mouth ready to crunch the bones of a cheeky little surfer willing to take it on,’ another added.
