Has Garrett McNamara Surfed the World's Tallest Wave?


Word is spreading that Garrett McNamara surfed a record 90-foot wave off Portugal. In 2008, Mike Parsons surfed a wave estimated to be 70 feet at Cortes Bank. Ken Bradshaw is believed to have surfed an 80-footer at Outer Log Cabins in 1998. McNamara's camp has estimated a wave height of 90 feet. We'll provide more info on his ride as it comes in. Until then, Drift put up a nice summary of the ride from surfer Al Mennie. Of course, you can also just watch the ride in the video below.
