In November 2011, surfer Garrett McNamara, who resides in Hawai'i, surfed a record-breaking giant wave:
78 feet (23.8 m) from trough to crest, at Nazar??.
On 28 January 2013, McNamara returned to the spot and successfully surfed a wave that appeared even larger,
but is awaiting an official measurement.
Then, on October 28, 2013, Carlos Burle surfed another wave that is currently being scrutinized as possibly
the largest wave ever ridden.
Such very high breaking waves form due to the presence of the underwater Nazar?? Canyon.
The canyon creates constructive interference between incoming swell waves which tends to make the waves
