Looks like a bad photochop:

Using 5D2 so no machine gunning. Sequence of 3:

Great pics!
that is a terrifying break!! Not just big and thick, but it looks like it gets shallow fast. That ledge is nasty. Would not want to go over the falls there.

Wow that is freakin heavy. It looks like shipstern's bluff, without the boils that usually rear their ugly head there.

That's a super heavy wave. Guys look like they're just getting pitted on those rights. Was this all tow-in or were guys paddling in to catch the wave? I definitely couldn't do it.

These are some great shots, but I would like to see you crop in closer to some of the action. But on a wave like this, I would probably struggle to keep both the immensity of the wave and the action from the surfer in the frame.

Thanks for comments.
Pretty sure all above were towins.

Majority of shots I used EF200 2.8 on 5D2 so could not get in any tighter however 5D2 does allow good "cropabability" anyway.

Lots of vids on youtube of this break, search "Ours"
Also "Cape Solander" and "Cape Fear"

The movie "Bra Boys" describes the discovery of the break and has some great footage too. (not really discovery , more realisation it could be surfed)
