Where are the biggest waves of the planet?
Since 2011 Portugal as been notice because of the The Nazare Canyon
Garrett McNamara, 43 years old surfed a record breaking giant wave: 78 feet (24 m)
After that Garrett McNamara gets married near the canyon, the world forgot again about the canyon, until this week.
It seems this time Garrett McNamara surfed a record breaking giant wave: 101 feet (31 m)
First time in the surf history.
For those who don’t know, The Nazaré Canyon is an undersea canyon just off the coast of Nazaré (Portugal), in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. It has a maximum depth of at least 5,000 meters (16,000 ft) and is about 230 kilometers (140 mi) long.

Thank you for sharing these facts. Some of them are fascinating. These waves are as powerful as a strong tsunami. What about the dangers involved? Anyway, she deserves recognition for her achievement because she was brave enough to face life-threatening dangers. The obvious reason why that canal is not well known is because it is undersea so it is probably not visible from the surface

Should be great for diving?

It's very dangerous for diving since human can't tolerate the high pressure under the seawater. We need something like submarine to explore the deep of the nazare canyon.

Sounds like a good challenge.
