    How Scared Are You Of This Massive Wave? Just Wondering

    I'm having heart palpitations

    This is Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa who, as of November, holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave ever surfed.

    Koxa surfed the massive wave in Nazar矇, Portugal, on Nov. 8, 2017. HOWEVER, it was just officially recognized as the tallest wave ever surfed at the World Surf League's Big Wave Awards this past Saturday.

    Well, the wave was quite literally 80 FEET TALL, and you guys, I am SHAKING after watching this footage. It truly encapsulates all of my greatest fears: heights, Thalassophobia (fear of the ocean), and chafing from heinous wetsuits.

    Play at your own risk, because I fucking warned you:

    Dude! > #Brazil's Rodrigo Koxa sets record for biggest wave ever surfed #SundayMorning #surfer

    So, like...



    I am thoroughly unwell.

    TBH Rodrigo, IDK how or why you do what you do, but if it makes your heart sing, then shred on, brethren. Shred on.

    P.S. How afraid are you after watching that vid? Pls rank your fear out of 10 in the comments below.
