Garrett McNamara

  • McNamara's record breaking surf on 100ft wave!

    Garrett McNamara does it again! Not content with his previous record 78ft wave at the Billabong XXL back in 2011, it seems he's beaten it with a ridiculous surf of 100ft wave!

    Fearless (and some might say insane) McNamara, 45, surfed his way into the record books again on Monday, surfing the monster wave just off the coast of Nazare, Portugal, said of the feat "Personally, it was very challenging. You just have to stay in the moment, stay focused on what you're doing. We're really comfortable here, but some of those waves..."

    “It’s the most challenging, dangerous wave I’ve ever surfed – it’s the only place in the world in which a giant canyon reaches all the way to the beach.

    “I was totally in the moment. PCP – present, connected and protected.

    “When I got on the board and they pulled me up with tow rope everything just felt right, it was like magic.”

    Although the record break is not yet official, from the photos it's clear McNamara's surf was a pretty insane ride!

    Experts are now analysing the size of the wave to verify claims the record has been broken.

    Miguel Sousinha, president of Nazaré Qualifica, said: “The Garrett McNamara team believes that the wave surfed Monday is higher than the one of 2011, but to avoid any controversy we asked two surfers who certify the Billabong XXL to confirm the size of the wave, before we talk about a new record.”

    Either way, McNamara, we salute you!
