Ernie Anastos and Rosanna Scotto were in the middle of a report on Hurricane Sandy’s looming arrival in New York’s tri-state area when, suddenly, they noticed that someone could be seen surfing off the coast of Long Island.
44-year-old Hawaii pro surfer Garrett McNamara has just been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for riding the tallest wave ever, attaining the record by surfing a 78-foot beast off the coast of Portugal.

This one, however, delivers: the 5-foot-10 McNamara looks like an ant compared to the current he’s trying to tame, and he briefly disappears in the wave’s break. But he emerged unharmed, and would soon become the proud owner of one of the more awesome world records a human being can own. [AP]
