Surfer Surfs Recording-Breaking 90-Foot Wave

November 9, 2011

You know what separates the men from the boys? Pubic hair. I'm serious, I think that's it. This is a video of Garret MacNamara risking getting deep-sixed by a 90-footer to set a record for the largest wave surfed, breaking Mike Parsons' 2008 record of 77-feet. Impressive, Garret, but what would happen if you fell off? "I'd float." How?! "Testicles are buoyant* and mine are the size of a whales'!" Jesus! So wetsuit technology -- that's the real news here.

*This statement has not been evaluated by medical professionals although I did perform several Google searches and get caught up reading about guys' penises floating in the bathtub.

Hit the jump for the humunga cowabunga from down under or whatever.

Thanks to mack and Tibaldo, who once entered a surfing competition thinking the winner got to go on a date with a mermaid.
