Koxa surfed the massive wave in Nazaré, 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:
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.
