“The forecast called for one of the biggest days of surf ever at Nazaré, and the waters off of Praia do Norte did not disappoint. On January 18, Maya Gabreira, Hugo Vau, Alex Botelho, Sebastian Steudtner, Ross Clarke-Jones, Benjamin Sanchis,and Axi Muniain faced one of the world’s biggest rideable waves. The footage is jaw-dropping. Big wave surfing doesn’t get much gnarlier than this”.
