the biggest wave ever surfed

This video of Mike Parsons being towed into a 60 foot wave will always be awesome, but a close second is this one of Garrett McNamara off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal, breaking a world record by riding a wave estimated to be 90 feet high. Though I’m not really sure how they measure how high the waves are. If I were on the board they could judge it by how loud my terrified screaming became.
