Garrett McNamara talks about surfing 78-foot wave
McNamara tried to talk about what it was like to ride that kind of wave. “It’s like snowboarding with an avalanche chasing you,” McNamara said.
He said he feels really natural in the water and he gets excited instead of nervous.
McNamara said that he didn’t even mean to surf that day. He was beat up from the day before when the waves were actually bigger.
McNamara wasn’t sure if there has ever been a bigger wave that went undocumented. But he said it was for him for sure. He had surfed a couple of 70-footers.
McNamara said he’s still looking for a “much bigger wave” and he’ll celebrate then.
