Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 03, 2018

A Brazilian surfed a 68-foot wave and placed her name in the record books. In January, Maya Gabeira conquered the large wave during a surfing event in Nazaré, Portugal. It happened at the same location where she suffered a serious injury in 2013. Months after the surfing event, Guinness World Records announced the 68-foot wave Gabeira surfed was the largest on record for a woman.

At first I thought she might have dropped the tow rope too far down the face...until I saw it break on her and she barely emerges from the wash.

Pretty awesome. I never had the balls (or ------) for that stuff. 10-15ft wipe outs we enough for me.

You and me both...the largest I ever have done (completely unintentionally on a rogue set) was around 20 ft (40" face) at Todos Santos years ago and I thought I was going to crap my Springsuit. Double-triple overhead (6-10" back) is about as high as I ever want to go.
