US surfer Garrett McNanamara rides a wave during a surf session at Praia do Norte beach in Nazare, Portugal, Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013. McNamara is said to have broken his own world record for the largest wave surfed when he caught a wave reported to be around 100ft, off the coast of Nazare on Monday. If the claims are verified, it will mean that McNamara, who was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA, but whose family moved to Hawaii's North Shore when he was aged 11, has beaten his previous record, which was also set at Nazare, of 23.77 meters (78 feet) in November 2011.
