Dramatic footage has emerged of a monster wave wiping out a boat at the Nias surf break in Indonesia.
The incredible video shows a wave, estimated to be almost six-metres high, crashing into a boat, smashing it into pieces.
Renowned surf filmographer Jack Germain filmed the carnage from the safety of land at Lagundri Bay, Nias.
Initial reports suggest the boat had no passengers aboard and had somehow drifted into the line-up of the famous surf break.
After a few close calls, the empty boat met its demise when it was flipped over by one of the biggest waves of the day.
Indonesia is currently being battered by one of the biggest swells in recent years, with wave heights reaching six metres in some locations.
The large swell has attracted top surfers from around the world to the wave-rich region.
There have been no reports of injuries from the incident.
