Garrett McNamara has set a new world record, for The Biggest Wave Surfed in Nazare, Portugal.


This record was previously believed to be held by Mike Parsons and was recorded 100 off the coast of San Diego at a place called Cortez bank.  This wave in Portugal is estimated to have been 10-20 feet larger.

Nazare, Portugal is notorious for what the call ‘Rogue Waves” and this monster was part of a 3 wave rogue set that came through on this epic day.

Congrats Garrett, great record, but something tells me….it wont stand forever.
