Surfer breaks world record, rides 90-foot wave: HOLY WOW

Just to preface this video for anyone who has never surfed: the ocean, and specifically surfing, has a way of teaching humility and respect for Mother Nature in a way few things can. It’s tough to comprehend the true size and power of a wave is until you’re staring it down, in the water, just you and your board. You realize this incredible act of energy and inertia can swallow you whole, like some Melvillian Moby Dick scene.

In the case of surfing, if you’re not actually in the water, objects are always way f’ing bigger than they appear. You are the bomb, Garrett McNamara.
