The Biggest Waves Ever Surfed

Now that a 100-foot wave has been surfed, the bar has been raised yet again for somebody to step up and set a new record. Until then, we take a look at some other feats of record height to get a better perspective on just how big the biggest waves ever surfed really were:
  • Garrett McNamara beat his record of the biggest wave surfed from 78 ft in November 2011.
  • Shawn Dollar holds the record for current paddle-in at 61 ft from May 2013.
  • The highest motorcycle jump is held by Robbie Maddison at 35 ft in January 2009.
  • The highest snowboard air on superpipe is 23 ft by Shaun White in January 2010.
  • And last, but definitely not least, the highest outdoor high jump at 8 ft by Javier Sotomayor on July 1993.
