"Did Garrett McNamara Ride A 100-foot Wave?"

I`m going to have to defer to Betteridge`s law of headlines on this one.

It`s not forced perspective.

Look at the wave, then look at the dude, then look at the wave again.

100 feet.

Done a lot of surfing on the west coast of Ireland, we get the same swells hit us as Portugal but nothing that size. Dayum!

@Gerry: Swells bring consistent sized waves. Im pretty sure they were all better than 90 feet. Regardless, its an impressive run. I went to North Shore and swells were coming at about 20 feet and I chickened out.

That`s not surfing. That`s the ocean running away from him in fear.

Was he using a board or did he kill Chuck Norris and wax him up as soon as he rigor`d?

I don`t think he did it on purpose. He just caught a bit of wave and it grew and grew and grew. Once you are on it there`s not much choice but to keep going as long as you can.

Did he live?

I can`t really tell. His balls are so big it is hard to judge the size of the wave.
