In January 2018 in Nazaré, Portugal, the Brazilian surfing female athlete successfully conquered a wave of waves up to 20.72m, creating a new surfing record. Recently, on the official website of Guinness, confirmed Maya Gabeira is the world record.
Tsunami waves of more than 20 meters have occurred in many parts of the world. If you want to do a tsunami challenge, you can go to areas within the Pacific Ring of Fire with the possibility of high tsunamis like Japan and the Philippines .
Tsunamis are completely different from normal waves caused by wind and tides. Tsunami formed by volcanic activity, earthquake. Usually it happens after an earthquake occurs in the ocean.
If an earthquake is above 6.5 on the Richter scale, a tsunami can be created. The tsunami will start deep in the ocean and spread along the coastline, quickly gaining high speed and tremendous power.
However, what happens if you surf the tsunami?
Experts say tsunamis are very high and contain tremendous energy. More. a tsunami can move up to 800 km / h when it reaches the shore, equivalent to the speed of a passenger plane.
If you can climb to the top of the wave, you will quickly realize that this wave is completely different from any other wave you surfed before. That is because tsunamis cannot be "broken" like waves created by the wind.
Not to mention the huge tsunami of over 20 meters, making surfing on this "monster" almost impossible.
According to Insh, you will quickly be swept into any beach where the tsunami hits, you can't even "land" on the beach because it will take inland a few hundred meters or a few kilometers. Not stopping there, after pushing you to the mainland, the waves quickly pulled you back to the sea as they retreated.
Now it is not only you between the vast sea of water created by the tsunami. Countless objects, people, vehicles, buildings on the way of the swept waves will be swept into the ocean, causing even more destruction as they break through the path of the tsunami.
A tsunami is not just a big wave; It could be many waves. A tsunami can last up to an hour, with waves as high as 30 meters constantly hitting the coast, destroying cities and killing thousands.
So when surfing the tsunami, you are easily swallowed by the "monster" . You may drown or die from debris from buildings, vehicles and structures.
In the world, tsunami surfing has also appeared but success is only a rare thing.
