The World's Biggest Wave

"The World's Biggest Wave”  is the 1st in my Tom's Winter Warmers series of original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal.


The Atlantic hammers with relentless anger into Portugal's west coast … and creates at Nazare the fiercest surf on the planet. Small wonder that crowds surge there to gasp at the spectacle. And when winter storms add their weight the seething walls of foam, taller than tower blocks, prove an irresistable magnet to the fearless daredevils of extreme surfing.

It was here in January 2013 that both the Brazilian Carlos Burle and Garret McNamara of the USA each surfed waves of an almost unbelieveable 100 foot in height and as ferocious as any force on earth. McNamara is credited with setting the world record that day, surfing the barrel of a 111 foot monster for 2 minutes 50 seconds … and he lived to tell the tale!

Can you imagine how the experience, the thrill must have felt for him? Probably not. But I ask the question because both McNamara and Burle, not to mention the many other extreme surfers present that day, and all the members of their support teams had imagined it before hand … over and over again.

You see they didn't just turn up at the beach on spec with an old board and wetsuit and pop into the water for an al fresco splash. They had first as youngsters dreamt of surfing the waves, then had practiced, trained and prepared for many years, building strength and experience, acquiring knowledge and technique. So by the time that they entered the water on that famous day they were as well equipped as any person could be to confront the challenge awaiting them.

Of course there was still risk. That very morning Brazilian professional Maya Gabeira had to be resuscitated on the beach after being knocked unconscious under an 80 foot cascade. She was fortunate both to be rescued and to survive with just a broken ankle. McNamara himself suffered a dislocated shoulder and broken arm in a near death 'wipeout' off the California coast in 2016.

But without risk there would be no challenge. And to be up for the challenge you must be prepared. Anything less is just plain foolhardy. So these are the lessons to be learned by all regardless of how big or small is your horizon in life or business. Dream success, imagine it, plan for it, be ready … then when the moment comes to confront your own personal breaker have the courage and commitment to ride it for all you're worth.

Rise to life's challenge, take on the world's biggest wave.

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

Your input is appreciated so please comment on “The World's Biggest Wave”


It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
