However, the BBC has decided to stun me again with a fantastic HD video of a slow-motion wave.
Made for the TV documentary 'South Pacific', footage is of big wave surfer Dylan Longbottom in a 12 foot monster barrel - the first shots of their kind ever recorded.
This is without a doubt one of the most impressive pieces of footage ever taken.
Needless to say, the below video should be watched in HD:
