German surfer rides monster wave in Nazaré setting up the race for a new world record

German surfer Sebastian Steudtner, 33-years-old, rode a spectacular monster wave in Portugal's Nazaré during the giant swell of February 7.

The footage was just recently released during the presentation of this year's nominations for the WSL Big Wave Awards, in which Steudtner’s wave is now one of the final 5 waves nominated for the Biggest Wave Category.

The Awards ceremony will take place in California on May 2 and a winner or potential record-breaker will be announced.

Locals described this wave as one of the biggest waves of the season and one of the biggest ever.

Pedro Miranda, the filmer who captured this footage, said: ''February 7 was a really tough day to capture video in Nazaré, the mist was thick and the light was terrible, even so, I’m really happy to have captured Sebastian’s wave, that thing was monstrous and Sebastian’s ride was flawless, for sure one of the biggest and most spectacular waves I’ve ever captured out there.'' When asked about a potential new world record with this wave, Miranda stated: ''I don’t like to go into speculations, the official measurements will be presented by the WSL in just a few days, this was one of the biggest waves of the season for sure, calling this or any other wave from this season a new world record is just a game that I prefer not to play.'' Sebastian Steudtner, who already won the WSL Biggest Wave Awards two times (back in 2010 and 2015), posted on social media an unofficial measurement, sent to him by the German Institute for Solid State Physics, that determined the height of the wave to be 95ft.
