A caption from one of the photos read: The gigantic waves are too powerful for someone to paddle to so Mr Cotton was towed up by friend and colleague, current world record-holder Garrett McNamara

Helping a guy break your world record pretty makes you the most sportsman-like competitor in the history of everything.

This seems to be new news every year. Fact is, that area off the Portugal coast is the primo spot in the world for massive biatchin waves, brah. While it may be the biggest, it's certainly not the most difficult big wave ever surfed. A plumber from the UK? Yah, righ

Yah, but now he's in the record book for jet-skiing the largest wave.

Ah, a plumber. No doubt familiar with large brass fittings.

And here I am for feeling like an asshole for riding a motorcyle while I have one child out of wedlock.

My base, immediate reaction is, "what an asshole!"

I miss boogey boarding off the MD/DE coast.

Sigh.

Ahem, dear daily mail, the record was moved to 100 feet last year

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/2013/10/29/surf-big-wave-portug al /3296883/

surfing a 80 foot wave these days is a nice try but no cigar.

By 'surfing' you mean he managed to stay vertical for about 10 seconds?

It all depends on his motivations. It's possible that he looked at how choppy it was and said, sure pal I'll tow you to your death.

It's a bold move, Cotton, lets see if it works for him.
 
2014-02-04 06:07:45 AM  
I've been to every city in Mexico. I came across an unclaimed piece of meat in Baja, turned out to be Rosie. I guessed he picked a knife fight with somebody better. Found one of your passports to Sumatra, I missed you by about a week at Fiji. But, I knew you wouldn't miss the fifty year storm, Bodhi.

While that had to be a hell of a ride. To set a wave record shouldn't they have to catch the start of the wave & ride the rise first. Granted I've never been surfing, but all the videos & photos I've seen show the surfer starting off shore & riding the wave in. Which looks like a hell of a good time.

That wave is real, from a surf documentary movie.  At the time of filming it set the worlds record for the biggest pipe ever surfed at 64 feet.

/The record is now 90 feet.
