Surfer Garret McNamara rides what may be biggest wave ever | Daily Buzz - Yahoo! NewsAn American adventurist may have just surfed the largest wave ever after riding a 27-metre (90 feet) wall of water off the coast of Portugal.
Garrett McNamara, 44, of Hawaii had to be towed into the wave on a jet-ski to break the record by more than a metre, which was previously held Ken Bradshaw.
"This wave was very different," McNamara says to ABC News. "This one just jacked up, broke, actually kind of barreled, and went to run me over, and somehow by the grace of God, I made it."
