Garrett McNamara, one of the best big wave surfers of all time just broke yesterday the world record for the biggest wave ever surfed. The incredible new record was established at Praia Norte Beach, near Nazaré, Portugal.The gigantic wall of water was 90 feet high.
Interviewed by a portuguese tv station, Garrett stated that this wave was the most challenging he had ever surfed.
Born in Hawaai, Garrett has gained a reputation for being one of the best big wave surfers in the world.
The main goal of Garrett in Nazaré was to explore its waves – with special attention to Praia do Norte’s waves, which receive the effect of the geomorphologic phenomenon known as “Nazaré Canyon”.
The canyon is so unique because it is one of the only one in the whole world that ends on the shore allowing the power of the water and swell to make it to the beach without losing any energy or size.
After months of surfing, the hard work paid off and Garrett is now the world record holder for the biggest wave ever surfed.
Now check the video and get amazed.
