NOW THAT'S A BIG WAVE! Garrett McNamara rode a wave off Praia do Norte beach Monday in Nazare, Portugal. McNamara is said to have broken his own world record for the largest wave surfed when he caught this one, estimated to be about 100 feet. If the claim is verified, it will mean that McNamara, who was born in Pittsfield, Mass., but whose family moved to Oahu’s North Shore when he was 11, has beaten his previous record, which was also set at Nazare, of 78 feet in November 2011.
