Garrett McNamara caught the huge wave during the ZON North Canyon Project in Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal.
McNamara told Surfer Today: ‘I feel so blessed and honoured to have been invited to explore this canyon and its special town. The waves here are such a mystery.’
The 44-year-old was part of a trio including Andrew Cotton and Al Mennie when his chance arrived.
‘Everything was perfect, the weather, the waves. 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.’ Said Mennie
