A surfer achieved a Guinness World Record for riding a 68-foot tall wave.

Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira tackled the huge challenge at Praia do Nortre in Nazare, Portugal earlier this year, and she was presented with her certificate on Monday (02.10.18) after officials reviewed video of her run.

The 31-year-old said: "To set the world record has been a dream of mine for many years."

She was also presented with the World Surfing League's first ever Women's XXL Biggest Wave Award during the ceremony this week.
