Brazilian surfer is a contender for world record – biggest wave surfed

28 October 2013 saw one of the largest swells of the year at Praia do Norte, Nazaré. Witness spectacular surfing and a possible world record for the biggest wave ridden by Brazilian surfer Carlos Burle.

This video was shot at the Nazaré ‘North Canyon’ and shows a selection of big waves, with Burle’s record contender seen from 3.10. It was a day of high drama as legendary Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira nearly drowned, only to be rescued by Carlos Burle, who then went on to ride one of the biggest waves ever seen – possibly even topping the mythical 100 feet.

“It was luck. We never know when we will be catching the wave. I still hadn’t surfed any wave and everyone had already had their rides. Maya almost died. For me, it was a big adrenaline moment to get back there after what happened”, reveals Carlos Burle.

Has Carlos Burle beaten McNamara’s largest wave record? May be someone out there can help us out.
