Biggest Wave Surfed – level 1

03-05-2018 07:00

Rodrigo Koxa is a surfer. He is from Brazil. He surfs a 24-metre wave in Portugal. He sets a new record. The wave is the biggest wave ever surfed.

There is a video of him and the wave. The wave is so big, that it is very hard to see Rodrigo.

There is an awards ceremony. The surfer gets a prize for surfing the wave. He tells people to keep believing in their dreams.

Difficult words: awards ceremony (an event when people get a prize for doing something difficult), prize (a thing which is given to people after they do something great), keep believing in your dreams (believe that you can do great things).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
