Garrett McNamara Surfs 90 Foot Wave

10 Nov

Garrett McNamara seems like a pretty big badass, but this video proves it. While participating in the ZON North Canyon Project in Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal, a waverunner towed McNamara into a 90-foot rogue wave. There’s a more popular clip of McNamara doing it, but this video really gives a sense of just how big the wave actually was.


Unbelievable Great White Shark Photo in La Jolla, California

3 Sep

For the third time in a couple of weeks, surfers on the beaches of La Jolla, California reported seeing the dorsal fin of a great white shark.

This time, though, there is a picture of the shark. Gary Elliot took the picture, but did not see the dorsal fin until he took his pictures home and uploaded them.

What’s most amazing about the image, though, is the number of surfers located around the shark. Take a look at this larger view.

None of them reported seeing the animal. The lifeguards in the area claim the image shows a surfer getting ready to ride a wave. They say the beaches will not close unless there is an attack.
