Justine Dupont surfed "the greatest wave of her life" in Nazar posted: 16/11/2019

On Wednesday, November 13, Justine Dupont, 28, had spent the day in the cold water, surfing for hours on end. Seeing others heading back, she decided to try it one last time.

Here is all you need to know about the wave of a lifetime:

- She explained: Wed already been in the water for four hours. We were freezing and wanted to leave. Our mate Andre, who was on the cliff with the radio, told us a big set was coming. We saw it and decided to stay a bit longer. As soon as Fred [her boyfriend Fred David who was on a jet ski towing her] told me to go in the water, I saw the wave. It looked huge!

- When I let go of the rope I felt that I was going faster than usual. The GoPro flashed me at 66kph. I was flying. My board felt amazing. The feeling of having something so huge behind my back was so weird. The shadow of the lip was far in front of me. I wanted to make it down the wave and ride it until the end so bad. Im so stoked I made it. A mad, intense wave. The greatest wave of my life

- While this wave isnt officially measured yet, Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira still holds the record for the highest wave ever surfed by a woman with a 20.7m-high wave, which she surfed in October 2018.

- Surfing legend Garrett McNamara took to social media to ask the question. Looks like it might be the biggest wave ever ridden by a woman? Biggest wave of the day by everyone? Biggest wave of the year?

- The official wave height is currently being determined to be a contender for a new world record for Dupont for Largest Wave Surfed Unlimited-Female.

- An experienced big wave surfer, Dupont admits that this type of wave is hard to deal with. In fact, she's spent the last three winters in Nazar , Portugal to train specifically for it.

- A special mention goes to her friend, Cl ment Nantes, who took care of her safety on the second jet ski. Nantes presence enabled Dupont to feel more confident and ready to perform.

- The bigger the wave, the faster it goes, the more perturbations you face, the more time you spend in the air, she said. Im so proud of our team and our evolution here in Nazar . Can't wait to keep pushing our limits together. I don't know if it was a record, but it's definitely my personal record and I'm really proud of it.
