A surfer took on and successfully surfed an absolutely killer 100-foot wave in Portugal to break his own world record for largest wave surfed.

Surfer Garrett McNamara rode a monstrous 100-foot wave in Portugal, shattering the record he previously set in 2011 for surfing a 78-foot wave.

McNamara was accompanied by fellow surfers Andrew Cotton and Alastair Mennie on the trip

“Everything was perfect, the weather, the waves,” said Mennie. “Cotty and I surfed two big waves of about 60 feet and then, when Garrett was ready, came a canyon wave of over 90 feet.

“The jet ski was the best place to see him riding the biggest wave I’ve ever seen. It was amazing. Most people would be scared but Garrett was controlling everything in the critical part of the wave. It was an inspiring ride by an inspiring surfer.”

Here’s the trailer for the video soon to come:
