The photos and video are heart-stopping -- the tiny figure of extreme surfer Garrett McNamara balancing on his board as he slides down what's being billed as a record-breaking, 100-foot wall of water.

Thanks Pam!
A very brave man indeed, and wonderful photos.

The storms in the north and center of Portugal were frightening, winds of up to 150kph were what created these monster waves, and created huge destruction inland.
