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.

LOL. Crazy and with balls of steel.

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.

A clip compilation of the swell that day...
