Biggest wave ever ridden?
Publicerad fredag 11 november 2011 av RedaxNyheter / Världen



Garrett McNamara has ‘reportedly’ made history by breaking the current record of the biggest wave ever surfed. The wave, ridden during the two-month period of the ZON North Canyon Show 2011, said to be around 90 feet high. Towing in off Nazaré (about one hour’s drive north of Peniche where the recent ASP world tour event was held), which is home to one of the only deep-water canyons that runs all the way to shore, Garrett’s wave was witnessed by tow buddies Andrew Cotton from the UK, and Al Mennie from Ireland.

Everything seemed to be perfect”
, said Al, “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!” tracksmag.com
