It’s not every day you see a guy surf a 90 ft wave so this is a must watch.
Big wave surfer Garret McNamara has made history by smashing the current world record for the biggest wave ever surfed when he successfully rode a 90 foot monster off the coast of Portugal.
Here’s the insane footage.
Oh. My. Sweet. Sh*t. That’s sick.
“He was towing with Andrew Cotton, from the UK, and Al Mennie, from Ireland, when the bomb came in. Al was in the channel and describes the moment. “Everything seemed to be perfect, the weather, the waves. Both Cotty and I rode two big ones in the 60ft + range and then when Garrett got on the rope a wave, maybe 30 feet bigger came out of the canyon, it was meant to be. I had the best seat in the house as I was doing water safety on the ski as he dropped down the face of the biggest wave I’ve ever seen. It was incredible. Most people would look scared but Garrett looked in control as he went down the most critical part of the wave. It was an inspirational ride by an inspirational surfer. After the ride it was as if the sea calmed down. We sat out there and just absorbed both what had just happened and the surroundings. What a day!” [DriftSurfing]
Surprised he didn’t sink considering that he must have steel balls.
