Hawaiian professional surfer Garrett McNamara has broken his own record for riding the world’s tallest wave off the coast of Nazare, Portugal.

Witnesses are saying the wave that McNamara rode was over 100 feet high.

Video cameras captured McNamara being towed into a set of enormous waves that all looked to be around 100 feet high.

The surfer’s daring feat is thought to have set the new world record for tallest wave surfed. If that proves to be the true, McNamara will have broken the previously existing record, set by him, of 78 feet, which he did at the same location in November 2011.

Guinness World Records officials will begin their verification process of the wave shortly.
