By: Matthew Steffen

Sebastian Steudtner proved himself to be one of the best surfers in the world as he has broken the record for biggest wave surfed ever! On May 24, 2022, the Germans world record ride was announced with the wave standing at an estimated 115 feet. Though, he set the record in October of 2020 off the coast of Nazare, Portugal. The wave was originally estimated at 86 feet, but after further inspection on the viral video, the wave is now thought to have been 115 feet tall. Steudtners wave was so massive that it was 40 feet taller than the previous record which was also set in Nazare. With this accomplishment, Steudtners has engraved his name in the history of the sport and will forever be known as a legend.
