1. Jaws- Pe'ahi, Maui, Hawaii

As you may have guessed, Jaws got its name from the terrifying shark thriller. Big wave surfers here use tow-in methods in the water. Most of them are launched by Maliko Bays boat ramp, and towed in to avoid the steep climb as well as extremely fast moving waves. Jaws Peahi is the location of the Red Bull Jaws contest, a surfing contest held for 21 of the best and most daring big wave surfers in the world.
