I’ve been blown away before watching surfer’s with serious skills conquering the real big waves, but this takes the cake… Dude said he had to kick out right away to avoid slamming the rocks… Squid anyone?
This photo released Tuesday, by Nazare Qualifica organization, Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara rides a wave off Praia do Norte beach in Nazare, Portugal, on Monday. McNamara is said to have broken his own world record for the largest wave surfed when he caught this wave reported to be around 100 feet off the coast of Nazare on Monday. If the claims are verified, it will mean that McNamara, who was born in Pittsfield, Mass., but whose family moved to Hawaii’s North Shore when he was 11, has beaten his previous record, which was also set at Nazare, of 23.77 meters (78 feet) in November 2011.
