In this video, big wave rider Garrett McNamara surfs a 90-foot wave near Nazaré, Portugal, breaking the world record for the biggest wave ever surfed.
The feat is still unofficial, but regardless, it's an insanely huge wave!
As ESPN reports:
"If accurate, the wave estimate would dwarf previous 'biggest wave ridden' candidates such as Mike Parson's 2008 frontrunner at Cortes Bank — estimated in the 70-foot range — or Ken Bradshaw's 1998 wave at Outer Log Cabins — estimated at 80 feet (but lacking solid documentation)."
