Garrett McNamara

Garrett McNamara has accomplished what very few people in the world could ever dream of. From his ability to surf the biggest waves Jaws has to offer, to Stand Up Paddling at Mavericks, McNamara exemplifies what it means to be a Waterman. No other sports enthusiast challenges such a wide range of the supposedly impossible feats. McNamara is one of two people in the world to surf tsunami waves created by calving glaciers. And if that’s not enough, McNamara holds the Guinness world record for surfing the largest wave ever in Nazare Portugal. Just recently he was awarded the prestigious Vasco de Gama Medal of Honor from the Portuguese Navy. During his spare time he gives back through multiple charities, with Surfer's Healing being his favorite. He has overcome adversity and is a living example that everything is possible no matter the circumstances.
