It happened last year. He was towed in, but he still surfed it. PFA.

Quite the ride and outstanding timing too bad it's such a shitty video.

Awesome performance, but I didn't know that Portugal was famous for waves that big! Other big wave locations are Mavrick's (On the Northern California Coast), and way far off the coast of Baja California (Mexico), and Hawaii of course.
The report I read said that the wave was 80 feet, and that it broke the previous record of 78 feet.

Yep, Nazare is THE big wave location on the planet, when the conditions are right. Hawaii gets big every winter. Remember though, places like Waimea, Pipeline, Jaws, Teahupo and Mavericks are usually reserved for people who paddle into them, not for those towed into them. Paddling into a wave over, say, 25ft would be almost impossible.

It is sorta hard to watch, thinking always of what the outcome will be!!

I see that in this contest surfer was one surfer was put in hospital, and several boards broken.

Full due to them.
