Biggest Wave Ever Surfed & Caught On Camera?

Sebastian Steudtner broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest wave ever surfed. On October 29, 2020, the German surfer rode an 86-foot wave (26.21 meters) at Praia do Norte in Nazaré, Portugal. According to the measurements made by the World Surf League (WSL), Steudtner improved Rodrigo Koxa’s previous world record by six feet (1.83 meters).

On November 8, 2017, the Brazilian had set a new big wave surfing mark at 80 feet (24.38 meters). His achievement remained untouched for nearly five years.

Praia do Norte gets its fifth Guinness World Record for the largest surfing waves after Garrett McNamara (2011), Rodrigo Koxa (2017), and Maya Gabeira (2018 and 2020).
