The extreme waterman explorer known for breaking the world record for largest wave ever surfed has done it, again!
Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara just broke his previous world record of surfing a 78-foot wave and tackled a life-threatening 100-footer off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. The wave was real and his ride was breathtaking.
He was accompanied by fellow surfers Alastair Mennie and Andrew Cotton. Mennie told the Guardian:
“Everything was perfect, the weather, the waves. Cotty and I surfed two big waves of about 60ft and then, when Garrett was ready there came a canyon wave of over 90ft. The jet ski was the best place to see him riding the biggest wave I’ve ever seen. It was amazing. Most people would be scared but Garrett was controlling everything in the critical part of the wave. It was an inspiring ride by an inspiring surfer.”
It appears that his search for that next big wave is over…or is it?
