(Newser) – The surfing world is buzzing today on reports that Hawaiian Garrett McNamara got the holy grail of the sport—a 100-foot wave. Surfer Today has an image of McNamara riding the behemoth in Nazare, Portugal. Surf experts say it looks like a 100-footer, but it will be a while before the folks at Guinness weigh in. At the very least, it looks like McNamara has broken his own world record of 78 feet, from 2011. You can see video of that ride here.
