Hard to tell without scale but 3s in the top pic.

no frame of reference, very hard to tell. I have pics that look like that and it was easily 3-5's. Other pics look the same and it's tiny 1 footers.

The perspective may be misleading me, but the first pic looks like they might be at most 1'ers - meaning 2' from trough to crest.

If you were telling a story about racing a guy in them and winning........they'd be 6s.

I got in a long arguement on THT 6-7 weeks ago about wave heights on some pictures I posted. (42 Tiger at speed, out of the water, clearing 2 boat lengths). I called them 3, occasional 4 and everyone there swore they were 1-2's. That first pic looks very similar to the pics I posted.
Someone did finally say that wave height should be measured by the average 2/3rd's of the waves and from "level" to the top of a wave and not bottom of trough to top of the wave (1/2 of the total height we seem to measure).
