New World Record For The Largest Wave Surfed By A Woman

If you have listened to the show for very long, you know Chelsea hates frivolous World Records. The one's where people waste time setting a world record for blowing a snickers across the floor, or setting the world record for typing with your nose are the type of records that make Chelsea's blood pressure skyrocket. This is NOT that type of record. This is a truly amazing world record recently set by Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira. She breaks her own record of a 68 foot wave by surfing this monster in the waters of Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal earlier this year. It is 73 and half feet! How do we know this? Well the wave height was ndependently verified by teams from University of Southern California, Wave Co Science Team and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. AMAZING!
