Garrett McNamara Surfs Uber-Monstrous 90-Foot Wave

Well folks, it happened. Just when you think there isn’t enough adrenaline-packed activity out there, Garrett McNamara shatters our expectations with a 90-foot wave. It happened a couple of weeks ago on November 1st, when McNamara, a Hawaiian professional, was surfing off the coast of Praia do Norte, Nazare, Portugal with fellow big-wave riders Al Mennie and Andrew Cotton.

Al Mennie told Surfer Today, “Everything was perfect – the weather, the waves. Cotty and I surfed two big waves of about 60 feet and then, when Garrett was ready came a canyon of wave of over 90 feet.”

The funny thing–McNamara wasn’t even planning on surfing that day. I read that he had only agreed to go out and tow his friends, but apparently a bit of persuasion got the best of him. McNamara ended up riding the biggest wave recorded on film and certainly one of the world’s highest ever ridden.

You go, brah!
