    This is big news today. Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara surfed a big, big 90 ft - 30 m - wave at Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal. This is the video. Many people doesn't know that portuguese shore has good surf spots. But McNamara isn't a common surfer. He travels the world to surf the biggest waves possible...
Who is Garret McNamara? And why was he in Portugal this week? In Nazaré beach there's a condition called Nazaré's Canyon, it's a geomorphologic phenomenon.This makes waves turn huge when they arrive to the shore. They start small faraway from the coast but they keep their power. Check NazareNorthCanyon and read more about it and this amazing fearless man.
