Garrett McNamara took advantage of a historic swell to surf what’s reported to be an 85 to 100-foot wave at Nazaré, Portugal.
“The harbour where the jetskis are kept is about five minutes’ ride away. I can see it from my hotel window. You go out and it can be almost flat as you leave and ride along the coast. You start seeing the waves after about half a mile when you pass some rocks and turn a point. Then you are in the break. It’s unique. The waves break into cliffs 300ft in height. You can’t contemplate coming off because it would kill you.“
If the claims are verified, it will mean that McNamara has beaten his previous record, which was also set at Nazaré.
