Brazilian daredevil Maya Gabeira has improved her own world record for the biggest wave surfed by a woman, riding a 22.4m giant at Nazare and overshadowing the top male surfers in the process.

Gabeira, who broke her leg and almost drowned at the same spot in 2013, was towed by jet ski into her winning wave during a World Surf League Big Wave competition. It not only topped her 20.7m record from 2018, also at Nazare, but was the biggest wave ridden by any surfer over the last year.
