G-Mac on the mic

ESPN caught up with Garrett McNamara to talk surf and Portugal.

Garrett McNama has ridden everything from crazy, stupid huge Teahupoo to iceberg-induced Alaskan waves to Jaws on a jet board. So why's he spending so much time in Portugal? Up until McNamara rode the biggest wave ever there last year the country was more reputed for its sardines than its surf, but that's all about to change. "I an email from a local boy, Dino from Nazaré," says McNamara. "So I asked him to send me a picture, and it was this huge wave with a tiny guy standing in the foreground." It was on after that. ESPN Surfing spent some time with G-Mac in Portugal recently, and per usual, he had something to say.
