Maya Reis Gabeira (born April 10, 1987) is a Brazilian big wave surfer. She is most known for having surfed a 73.5 ft/22,4 m high wave in Nazare, Portugal in February 2020, recorded by Guinness World Records as the biggest wave ever surfed by a female surfer. She also held the previous record of 68 ft/20,8 m established in January 2018. Gabeira has received numerous accolades including the ESPY award for Best Female Action Sports Athlete and is considered one of the best female surfers in the world as well as one of most influential female surfers of all time.

Maya started surfing at age 14 in Rio de Janeiro and started competing at 15 years old. In 2004 she decided to become a professional at 17 while living in Australia and moved to Hawaii that same year to surf world class waves.
She quickly emerged as the world's top female big-wave surfer, winning global championships surfing challenging spots like Mavericks, Waimea, Todos Santos, and South Africa's shark-infested "Dungeons".
She has won the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards for four consecutive times (2007 to 2010) in the Best Female Performance category

In 2008, she became the first woman to surf the Alaskan Sea.[8] Gabeira also became the first woman to surf California's Ghost Trees and Tahiti's Teahupoo.

In 2009, Gabeira won the ESPY award for Best Female Action Sports Athlete. Later that year, Gabeira surfed the biggest wave ever by a female when she successfully rode a 14 metres (46 ft) wave at Dungeons, a big-wave surf spot in South Africa.
In 2010, she got the 2010 Teen Choice Award for Best Female Action Sports Star.
In 2012, she was awarded the XXL Big Wave Awards for Girls Best Overall Performance for the 5th time. She also appeared in the ESPN The Body Issue that same year.

On October 28, 2013, Gabeira lost consciousness and nearly drowned while surfing a massive wave at Praia do Norte, Nazareé, Portugal; she was saved by her fellow Brazilian big-wave surfer Carlos Burle. She had to be revived on the beach and later ended up in the hospital.
In 2016 the documentary Return to Nazaré by Red Bull TV shows how Maya Gabeira returns to Nazaré after having suffered the terrible accident surfing on the same beach in 2013. It is the portrait of a struggle to overcome obstacles, both physical and mental.

In January 2018 Gabeira surfed a 68 ft high (20.8m) wave in Nazare, PT, recorded by Guinness World Records as the biggest wave surfed by a female surfer.
In September 2020 Gabeira surfed a 73.5 ft/22,4 m high wave and broke her own previous record.
Gabeira has been nominated twice for the Laureus World Sports Award for Action Sportsperson of the Year in 2014 and in 2019.

She is one of the highest paid female big wave surfers on the planet. Gabeira is sponsored by Billabong and Red bull and currently lives in North Shore (Oahu) in Hawaii in the United States.

In September 10, 2020, Maya set a new Guiness World Record of the Largest wave surfed (unlimited) - female. [16] [17] It was held in WSL Nazaré Tow Surfin contest and the wave measured 73.5 feet (22.4 m). ... g2dm5Xeh-U
