Female Surfer Breaks Record

A Brazilian surfer broke her own Guinness World Records title by riding an epic wave.


The 33-year-old rode a 73.5-foot wave in Praia do Norte, Portugal, on February 11, beating her previous record by 5.5 feet. She made history in 2018 after surfing a 68-foot-high wave in the same waters.


"I never thought this could happen, still feels surreal," Maya Gabeira said in an Instagram post capturing her achievement. "To have a woman in this position in a male dominated sport is a dream come true!"
