Brazilian breaks world record for surfing an 80-foot wave, the biggest wave ever surfed

Rodrigo Koxa, 38 years old from Brazil, just won the WSL Biggest Wave Award yesterday in a ceremony held in Los Angeles. The wave in question was ridden back in November 8, 2017 in Praia do Norte, Nazaré Portugal, and was now officially measured at 80 feet, making this a new Guinness World Record for “Biggest Wave ever Surfed”, and beating the previous record of 78 feet by just 2 feet, held by legendary big wave surfer Garrett McNamara on a wave also ridden in Nazaré back in 2011.
