In 2009 Maya, made her mark in history by becoming the biggest wave rider in female surfing history when she surfed a 45-foot wave at Dungeons Beach in South Africa.


Teahupoo Tears

Probably the most incredible wave that Maya has taken on is the most dangerous wave in the World located in Tahiti called Teahupoo. This wave is so thick and powerful that it has put tears in the eyes if Laird Hamilton, the Biggest Wave Rider of all-time. Laird once paddled into a Teahupoo wave and after he got out of it alive, he started to cry from the overwhelming fear of the wave. You can see Maya surfing Teahupoo on youtube…
