The Biggest Waves Ever Surfed (WATCH!)

Big wave surfing is not for the faint of heart.

These surfers have some giant cojones. If you wipe out in one of these monsters, the wave can push you 20 to 50 feet underwater, and it’s extremely difficult to figure out which way is up once you’re under. You’ve got 20 seconds before the next wave hits, the pressure at 50 feet can rupture your eardrums, and reefs and rocks linger beneath the surface. And don’t even get me started on rip currents.

If you can stay upright, you’ve got bragging rights for life.

Thrill-seeker Garrett McNamara held the world record for the biggest wave ever surfed up until recently when he rode a mammoth 78-foot wave at Nazaré, Portugal. It was captured on video here:

Other than Nazaré, the biggest waves around the world include Banzai Pipeline, Mavericks, Waimea Bay, Ghost Tree, Punta de Lobos, and Teahupo’o. 

Rodrigo Koxa, 38 years old from Brazil, rode a massive wave on November 8, 2017 in Praia do Norte, Nazaré Portugal, and was now officially measured at 80 feet, making this a new world record. Watch the amazing footage below:

ABOUT US

Some contend that the distinction between an extreme sport and a conventional one has as much to do with marketing as with the level of danger involved or the adrenaline generated. For example, ATV Rider is both dangerous and adrenaline-inducing but is not considered an extreme sport. One common aspect of an extreme sport is a counter-cultural aura - a rejection of authority and of the status quo.
