Now that surfer is going to be doing his bragging that he surfed a 90 ft wave, but did he really do a 90 ft wave...I think not. But that was a bigass wave!

If it wasn't 90 foot. Then it wouldnt be a record. Theres a specific way to measure waves...
Garrett is like no other on big wave chasing... that is fu*in XXXXL!!

I can assure you that is every bit of 90ft.

That's portugal, not Hawaii. The average wave of that day was 60ft. This one was THAT much bigger. If he got the lip on the head.. he would have died.

Yep, it was Portugal. This particular spot has a deep water canyon that comes right to shore, and creates these monsters under the right conditions.
