Australian surfer Laura Enever was just surfing when she was lifted up by the water, she could tell that something was different than usual. People who surf a lot can tell when there are big waves underneath them. So 31-year-old Laura had no clue that the size of the wave was monstrous.

 

Laura never knew that this wave could be very dangerous. It took more than ten months to figure out how big it was. The wave that Laura had seen turned out to be a world record measuring at 43.6 feet. Enever’s wave beat Andrea Moller who had paddled into a 42 feet wave.

 

When Laura first arrived at the beach, she saw fog and mist surrounding the waves. When Enever paddled out, she had to go around many dangerous waves. “ I wasn’t even thinking” Let’s catch this wave; let’s get a world record,’ or anything. I was just kind of focused, in the zone, trying to escape these monster waves.” Enever said.
