Koxa took home the "XXL Biggest Wave Award", for his achievement at the World Surf League Big Wave Awards in Southern Calif., and his message was simple: "Keep on believing your dreams, guys".

Koxa rode the wave off Nazare, Portugal, on November 8, and WSL judges were able to determine it was 80 feet high after reviewing video and recognize that the Brazilian surfer now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave surfed.

Ever wondered what it would be like to successfully ride the tallest wave in the Guinness Book of World Records?

He described it as "a dream come true" and encouraged his peers to "keep believing in your dreams".

"I had an incredible dream the night before". You helped me believe that it was possible, and I got the bomb. With AP Photos.A monster wave off Portugal has produced a world record for a Brazilian surfer. But I figured somebody was talking to me.

The canyon produces interference between the incoming waves, which tends to make them much larger and much more unsafe. I turned and I nearly fell, but then I got my feet again and went super fast. I've never had a big wave like that where I didn't use the rail at all.

Now imagine there's a giant ocean wave that tall barreling down on you.

"But at Nazaré, for example, the ocean swells get focused in this submarine canyon and have much more energy".
