Man Breaks Record, Conquers World's Biggest Wave Ever at 100 Ft (30 M)

Surfer Garrett McNamara also set the previous world record

Surfer Garrett McNamara set out to do the impossible, in conquering a 100-ft (30-m) wave off the Nazare coast, in Portugal.

He not only succeeded, but he most likely broke a world record. Even more impressing is that, if confirmed, McNamara would be topping his own 2011 achievement. 2 years ago, he rode a 78-ft (24-m) high wave, according to the Daily Mail.

“I didn’t want to get caught up in it all, but I have to tell you the truth, when they announced my name I got a bigger rush than probably on all the waves I rode this year,” he said two years ago, as he was being awarded.

The 45-year-old daredevil from Pittsfield, Massachusetts moved to Hawaii and took up surfing at a young age.
