Dude Rides 78-Foot Wave to a Surfing World Record

surf record 560x291

I’ve never surfed a day in my life but it’s always been something I wanted to try. Key word being “try,” because I’m fairly certain I would drown in a riptide or be a shark snack once I paddled into a wave. Nevertheless, I can appreciate the professionals who make it look so damn easy. Like Garrett McNamara, whose ride on a 78-foot wave last November has officially been registered by Guinness as a world record. If you haven’t seen the video before, watch and be amazed.
