In November 2011, hurricane-force chases and floodplains paid off for McNamara as he joined Guinness World Records. He caught a 78-meter (24 m) wave in Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal, after being towed from a jet ski aboard a 6’0 Dick Brewer Tow Board.

His record surpassed the previous world record by fitness, but an earlier announcement (by others, not McNamara) became a source of controversy in the surfing world.
