Nazare Goes Large

Tuesday, 29 October 2013

Carlos Burle has ridden possibly the biggest wave in history at big wave hot spot Nazare, Portugal. It's the same place that Garrett McNamara caught his world record breaking 100-foot-wave earlier this year. Garrett was back for this session along with Sylvio Mancusi, Rodrigo Koxa, Felipe “Gordo” Cesarano, Hugo Vau, Eric Rebiere, Pedro Scooby and Andrew Cotton. 

The tow session almost took a turn for the worst when Brazilian charger Maya Gabeira was knocked unconscious. After receiving CPR and coughing up a whole lot of water, Maya survived with just a broken ankle. 


What'dya think, was Carlos' bigger than Garrett's? Discuss below.
