Monster waves have swept into the Portuguese hotspot and once again the major players were in the line-up to run the gigantic gauntlet. This was shot earlier this month at Nazaré – home to the world’s biggest wave.
Chargers among the likes of Andrew Cotton, Ross Clarke-Jones, Hugo Vau, and Garrett McNamara were able to push their limits like never before with some of the most impressive surf the spot has ever produced.
The results were a spectacular mixed bag of the divine and the dangerous.
Regardless of their credentials the surfers all logged some of the biggest waves and biggest beatings of their lives. A jetski was ripped from McNamara’s hands in 20ft of whitewater. Cotty fell from the sky on consecutive waves, and RCJ proved that once you’ve got it, you can never lose it. Check out some of the best moments from their session.
