Consider Garrett McNamara certifiably insane.
The Hawaiian surfer made news last year after surfing a record-breaking 78 foot wave off the coast of Nazare, Portugal. Now, it looks like he might have possibly shattered his own record.
News broke late Monday that McNamara caught a wave believed to have been as high as 100 feet - in the same place he set his last record, Nazare, Portugal. Below is the picture via @ciscosalvador. The red arrow is pointing at McNamara, giving you an idea at just how incredibly large this wave was.
Although some are already labeling this newest feat as a new record, some scientists are skeptical. It took the Guinness World Record group almost a year of research and science to confirm his last 78-foot record-breaking surf.
McNamara likes this surf spot in Portugal because of its commonality of incredibly large waves formed by a submarine canyon off the coast. Because of the canyon, the waves propagate over the top at different speeds. Once they converge near the shore the height of the waves increase.
