Did This Surfer Just Ride a 100-Foot Wave? (VIDEO)

The Holy Grail of big-wave surfing is the elusive 100-foot wave.

Like the quest for the biblical Holy Grail, finding and riding a bona fide 100-footer has become a singular obsession that has led a small group of obsessed men around the world to take some extreme risks, and claimed some lives in the process.

Garrett McNamara might have just become the Indiana Jones of the surfing world.

The 45-year-old daredevil from Hawaii (natch) reportedly hung-10 on this colossal swell off the coast of Nazare, Portugal.

See that tiny, pixel-sized speck in the middle of the photo above? That’s McNamara.

Somehow, he is currently not dead.

If you’ve ever surfed before, you know that a piddly five-foot swell in enough to gobble you up and pummel you in its backwash. The alleged-100 footer surfed by McNamara would almost certainly have torn him to shreds had he wiped out.

Although the height of the wave has not yet been officially confirmed, it’s undoubtedly one of the most monstrous walls of water ever ridden.

The teaser clip released today (which seems to show a few seconds of McNamara’s ride at the 39-second mark) probably doesn’t need operatic music accompanying it, since the footage alone is beyond epic.

World record or not, this one is monumental.

BEN KATCHOR somebody wanted to take me to a Starbucks, After an exhaustive investigation, “In some quarters of the city there was an increase in prices but in many other parts of the city there was no increase in the gasoline prices and in the parts of the city where there was an increase those residents had other alternatives . to go and get cheaper gasoline” Its also not clear that Mr Mamos contracts violate the relevant section of the which bars exclusive deals except when a distributor of branded gasoline which is what Mr Mamo is wants to ensure that the retailers using his brand provide fuel of “reasonably similar quality”Responding to the lawsuit Mr Mamo defended what he said are “legitimate operating agreements that have been in place for years and that are similar to operating agreements and dealer arrangements in jurisdictions across the country” This happens to be true: Mr Mamos business model is consistent with other forms of “vertical control” that have long been a feature of the gasoline market and that have a generally benign impact on efficiency and prices at the pump according to a by the University of California Energy InstituteWe dont doubt that Mr Mamo drives a hard bargain with station operators or that they would benefit from shopping among wholesalers Nor do we doubt that both Mr Mamo and his opponents have plenty of political clout and the will to exercise itWhat we do doubt because neither the recent history of local gas prices nor the economic literature supports it is that less leverage for Mr Mamo would mean more for consumers As likely the station operators not motorists would pocket the benefits Surely Mr Nathan can find better uses for his limited resources than a lawsuit that wont materially affect gas prices even in the unlikely event that it succeeds Nathans decision not to file an antitrust suit against Mr.” With the exception of the eye patch the resemblance is uncanny as is the garbled liltThe biggest running gag involves Nick and Roys human avatars as the undead officers must be disguised as real people while visiting earth So Nick looks like an elderly Asian man (played by James Hong) and Roy is Victorias Secret model Marisa Miller This revelation is somewhat amusing the first go-round when a couple of guys whistle at Roy But by the time he yells at a man about female objectification the comedy has drained out of the scenarioThe afterlife turns out to be a bureaucratic nightmare complete with an Eternal Affairs department and what amounts to a human resources orientation leader played by Mary-Louise Parker The barely clever wordplay and heaven-sent red tape is the peak of the films humorNick and Roy spend much of the movie chasing and fighting computer-generated deados but suspense disappears once its clear the two protagonists are very nearly invincible They fly off buildings and get squashed by buses but manage to immediately reboundThe sliver of a chance the pair could die (again) isnt enough to get an audience invested in their fates In fact if Roy had disappeared the movie might have been so much more enjoyable Maybe those coyotes had the right idearPG-13 At are

in an overlooked seven-acre parcel in Occoquan that was zoned for multi-family garden-style apartments A 76-unit project had been approved for the parcel in 1972 but that deal fell through and the property sat vacant for nearly four decades “off the beaten path and behind a commercial area” as Basheer described it until her firm bought it in 2010The purchase included some unusual cost-saving provisions When the earlier project was approved Prince William did not levy impact fees on new housing projects As long as Basheers townhouses stayed within the physical parameters of that project the “no impact fee status” of the property would be retained This required her to maintain the same density she had to have 76 units and the units had to fit into the same volume (length depth and height) that the originally proposed garden-style apartment buildings would have occupied Though it was a huge design challenge sticking to the original playbook lowered the cost of each unit by $35000 to $40000 Basheer said Fitting the requisite number of townhouse units into the volumes of the earlier project had no obvious solution Basheer said Fourteen-foot-wide townhouses would produce the correct unit count but this width precluded a garage a non-starter in this market A 16-foot width could accommodate a garage but the number of units would be 10 short Basheers directive to her architect was simple but succinct: “Be creative”Such an open-ended commission from a builder client is rare Anand said But as this project demonstrates when you give your architect free rein you will get unusual results Romney “came down more firmly in the abortion rights camp,].
