Man what an unbelievable ride/accomplishment: successfully riding a 30+ meter wave in arguably the most dangerous surf in the world in Nazare, Portugal:

I twaddled around on a board in my teens/early 20's at Jordan River, Tofino and a couple of times in Hawaii but this is the Mt Olympus of surfing. If you've ever been to the north shore in Hawaii and seen the Banzai Pipeline in person you were impressed enough not only by the sights but but the sheer power/sound of that surf, but consider the average wave there is only about 10-12 feet with a big one being maybe 25-30 feet. Then Steudtner, who is already the world record holder surfs this monster, the absolute mother of all waves, pretty incredible feat.

 

Here he is in 2019 surfing what was then the world record wave, also at Nazare, now relegated to second place after this weekend's exploit (if its ratified by the governing world surf league): he absolutely nailed this one too -
