This is the biggest wave ever surfed

Nature always makes you feel small.

Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa surfed a record-setting 80-foot wave from trough to crest in November 2017 in Praia do Norte, off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. The 38-year-old Koxa is the official world record-holder for riding the biggest wave ever.

Nazaré is renown for hosting surfing competitions every winter where the waves can get up to 98 feet.

Just look at the lighthouse and onlookers in perspective to the surfer surrounded by the mountainous wave, or shall we say avalanche.

Watch it for yourself after the jump.
