More on McNamara´s world record

The worlds biggest wave ever surfed record has gained media attention all over Portugal. One of the guys ( irish surfer Al Mennie) of Garrett´s crew gave a testimony of what happened to drift magazine :

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!

Garrett McNamara breaks the world record for the largest wave ever surfed - 90 feet!

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.
