Not official yet, but it sure looks to be close to 100ft. Somewhere Bodhi and Jonny Utah are sh*tting themselves over this. Awesome picture and I had no idea Portugal swelled up like this. Guy either has balls of steel or just a fuggin lunatic.

just think about the fact that one gallon of water weighs around 8 lbs.

think exponentially...a cubic meter of water weighs over one ton (about 2,200 lbs IIRC).

That's actually a video of a wave McNamara rode during winter 2011 at the same spot. I have been trying to find video of the wave he rode recently but have not been able to. That wave was supposedly around 90'. When you're talking waves that big, how much bigger is 10' really?

It's freakin' nuts though. I was amazed by the 35' waves hitting Waimea Bay on New Year's Eve. I couldn't imagine seeing one of those waves in person.

It's rare but nc sees overhead waves. Mostly in the winter and hurricane season. Some in the summer though.

All you need is offshore storms pumping the water and you can get big waves anywhere on the east coast
