January 29, 2013             11:55am

Garrett McNamara, the daredevil surfer who shattered a world record by riding a nearly 80-foot-high monster wave, may have done it again.

McNamara, 45, of Hawaii, was filmed on Monday surfing what appears to be a 100-foot wave off Nazaré, Portugal, the same location where, in 2011, he broke the record for surfing the biggest wave ever ridden.

“Thank you for all your support. It means the world to me. Today was an awesome day and so fun to be out there…,” McNamara tweeted.

Footage of McNamara,  possibly breaking his own world record, was shot  by surfing photographer Tó Mané.

The wave will have to be verified by Guinness World Records officials.  McNamara’s 2011 wave was initially thought to be 90-feet but was later verified through photos and videos to be 77.7559 feet high.

That height narrowly eclipsed the old “big wave” surfing record of 77 feet.

In an interview with ABC News after his 2011 wave, McNamara said a lot of careful planning goes into riding big waves. “I set up ahead of time … I run through it in my mind over and over. I check through all the safety precautions,” he said.

“It’s a very thought out, well-planned mission but once you get in the water and you’re at the spot there’s always the unknown and you just have to deal with it as it comes,” he said, noting that once he’s in the water his “100 percent instinct” takes over.

“Half the people think I’m out of my mind … and half are just – I think they all think I’m crazy, actually.”

A 44-year-old Hawaiian surfer has entered the Guinness Book of Records for riding the biggest wave ever thought to have been ridden.

Last November Garrett McNamara caught a 78ft wave off the coast of Portugal, beating the previous 2008 record by more than a foot.

McNamara began surfing at age 11 and became professional six years later.

He has described his achievement as a stroke of luck and has used his feat to urge people to follow their passions.

I knew it was big, but I didn’t know how big”

Garrett McNamara

The giant wave was located above an underwater canyon famous for being the world’s biggest wave generator.

McNamara has said that on the day he broke the record, he at first had not wanted to take a ride but his friends urged him to catch a few waves.

“Everything came together. Everything felt right”, he said.

Close scrutiny

Hundreds of thousands have viewed the video and photographs of McNamara’s ride. They show his figure dwarfed by a giant wall of water.

“I knew it was big, but I didn’t know how big,” he said.

He later sent the footage and pictures to surfing expert Sean Collins, who guessed the wave was 85-90ft tall. Collins died in December.

Last week, McNamara was awarded $15,000 (11,600 euros) for the ride at the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards in California.

Judges for the awards examined the footage and pictures from different angles.

They also compared McNamara’s height in a crouch and the length of his shin bone with the wave’s top and bottom before reaching a verdict, event director Bill Sharp told the Associated Press.

Commenting on the record, McNamara said: “The world would be a much better place if everyone was doing what they wanted to do”.

However, the UK Guardian newspaper quoted him as saying: “I’m not sure I want to ride that peak again”.
