Carlos Burle: Brazilian big wave charger defies Nazaré

Carlos Burle may have ridden the biggest wave of all time, at Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal, during the Big Monday swell.

The Brazilian crew traveled to Portugal with a goal in mind. To beat the Guinness World Record for the largest wave ever surfed, which belongs to the Hawaiian hellman, Garrett McNamara.

Carlos Burle, Pedro Scooby, Felipe Cesarano, and Maya Gabeira had big hopes for the European super swell.

On the 28th October, 2013, Burle claimed one of the biggest wave ever ridden at Praia do Norte. The first pictures show that he may be above the world record set by Garrett McNamara, at 23.77 m (78 feet), measured from trough to crest, on the 1st November 2011.

"It was luck. We never know when we will be catching the wave. I still hadn't surfed any wave and everyone had already had their rides. Maya almost died. For me, it was a big adrenaline moment to get back there after what happened", reveals Carlos Burle.

Carlos Burle, 45, from Pernambuco, has been living the adrenaline life of the big wave riders. In 2001, he rode a 22-meter (72 foot) wave, in Mavericks, Northern California. His wave at Praia do Norte will be analyzed by the Guinness World Records.
