A 2 minute, 15 second Wave Ride

by Owen James Burke

Windsurfing legend Robbie Naish has just surfed the longest wave of his life in Pavones, Costa Rica. Paddling in with a stand-up paddle board (SUP), Naish’s entire ride was captured on several cameras, timed, and charted on his handheld GPS so that he could measure the distance of the ride, which came out to .68 miles, or just over a kilometer.

“This was the longest wave I’ve ever ridden. It’s a good start to the project of traveling around the world trying to find the longest ones. Can’t wait to come back.”
