Maya Gabeira’s 68-Foot Wave Breaks A Guinness World Record

Maya Gabeira is a beast. Back in January, she was towed into a 68-foot Nazaré bomb and rode the avalanche of water like nobody's business. In honor of the feat, she was presented with a Guinness World Record for “Largest wave surfed (unlimited) – female."

Mind you, that was an accomplishment she earned after nearly dying from a  grueling wipe out in 2013. That monstrous wave not only snapped her tibia but almost drowned her. It was an experience that only made her more tenacious. Motivated, she recovered and met her fears head-on. 

"That return was no easy task, but it was something she had to do. I had to dig really deep,” she told the Inertia. “And I had to do the hardest thing for me, which was to come back and surf Nazaré.”

Jack Johnson never intended to become a musician, and neither did Ryan Bingham. Both songwriters were pursuing wildly different paths prior to their music careers. After becoming the youngest surfer to reach the finals at Pipeline Masters at the mere age of 17, Johnson’s surf career was looking bright. Meanwhile, Bingham’s focus was riding bulls at rodeos.  RELATED: Check out Volume I of the TGR Journal But through a strange twist of events, both musicians were forced to pivot and pursue new

Life in the Mentawais Looks Decidedly Chill During COVID-19

In these tumultuous times, there are some lucky spots on the planet that have remained largely unaffected. Among those are the Mentawai Islands, normally a surfing hotspot which have turned into a ghost town after a complete lockdown was put in place. While tourism might be a driving economic force, locals and the lucky few foreigners who are now stuck there have been experiencing the islands in ways nobody has in years.
