German man sets Guinness World Records with the biggest wave ever surfed

German surfer Sebastian Steudtner set the Guinness World Records on Tuesday with the world’s largest wave.

Sebastian surfed the waves on October 29, 2020, but it took about 18 months for the official Guinness World Records to be verified.

Three-time World Surf League Big Wave Award winner, Studner surfed a record high of 26.2 meters (85.9 feet) at Praiad Norte Beach in Nazaré, Portugal.

This broke the previous record held by Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Kokusa, who surfed a high wave of 24.4 meters (80 feet) on November 8, 2017.

Stuttner was awarded a certificate by an official Guinness World Records judge at a ceremony on the grounds of a lighthouse overlooking the famous Praiad Norte Break.

Steudtner also shared a video of him surfing a rogue wave on Instagram, writing: I’m really proud of this achievement and the performance of the whole team. My dream has been to be a surfer since I was a kid. I have always kept it faithfully. I hope my journey and this world record will give many people a chance to pursue their dreams. @guinnessworldrecords @wsl #stayready #readyfornazare #bigwavesurfing #worldrecord “.
