Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa has been crowned with the honour of riding the biggest wave ever.
According to the Associated Press (via ESPN), the World Surf League confirmed on Saturday that its judges measured the wave Koxa rode on Nov. 8 in Nazare, Portugal, at 80 feet in height. He bettered American Garrett McNamara's 2011 record by two feet.
Per the AP's report, the World Surf League made the announcement at the Big Wave Awards in Santa Monica, California, and it said: "Not only did Koxa win this year's honor [for biggest wave], but he now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave surfed."
