"When you fly down the face of one of these waves, it's not a wave anymore," says Luke Har greaves, "it's a mountain." This mountain can move at 25 miles an hour and give a windsurfer the ride of his life, or leave him fighting for it. On a big wave day-Jaws kicks up about 12 times a year Hargreaves sails by as a wave flips Robby Seeger upside down. Seeger dove deep until the mountain barreled past, then he struggled through four more waves. "So far no one's died at Jaws," says Hargreaves. "I think that's because we always look out for each other."
