Surfer Garrett McNamara may have broken his own world record by riding a 100-foot wave in Nazaré, Portugal. And even if he didn’t break any records, it’s still a really big wave.

1. Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara set the world record for biggest wave ever ridden back in November 2011, when he tamed a 78-foot monster. McNamara reportedly broke his own record by riding this 100-foot wave on Monday in Nazaré, Portugal:
