“I knew it was the wave of my life”
Guinness record for the surfer Enever – “Tame” a wave greater than 13 meters
Australian surfer Laura Ever has broken a world record for the longest wave ever ridden by a woman.
The 31-year-old surfer rode the 13.3-meter (43.6-foot) wave in January in Oahu, Hawaii.
Her feat was recognized by Guinness World Records on Thursday at an event in Sydney.
“I knew it was big and when I took off I looked down and knew it was definitely the biggest wave I’ve ever ridden,” he said. “I knew it was the wave of my life,” he continued.
According to the head of the World Surf League, Jessie Miley Dyer, this is an incredible achievement. “Laura is fearless, dedicated and a true inspiration and I am so proud to be celebrating with her.” He declared.
Laura Enever started her surfing career at the age of 11. He won several junior competitions and then competed on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour for seven years.
The biggest wave anyone has ever surfed is held by German surfer Sebastian Stodner, who boarded a 26m monster in 2020.
