McNamara Biggest Wave - Garrett McNamara catches 90-foot wave to break records as the biggest wave ever surfed.

The surfer was towed into the bomb by Andrew Cotton and Al Mennie, both from the U.K.

“I feel so blessed and honored to have been invited to explore this canyon and its special town. The waves here are such a mystery”, McNamara said in a release.

The wave was surfed in Praia do Norte off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal, according to a release. The coast of Nazaré is home to one of the only deepwater canyons that runs all the way to shore. McNamara has been working with the Portuguese Hydrographic Institute to understand how the waves reach such an abnormal height.
