re-sized Nazare

Big wave surfing in Portugal – HUGE waves

As Northern Europe and England were battered by the huge storm on Monday, Nazaré, in Portugal, reaped the benefits of it.

Carlos Burle, Sylvio Mancusi, Rodrigo Koxa, Maya Gabeira, Felipe “Gordo” Cesarano, Hugo Vau, Eric Rebiere, Pedro Scooby, Andrew Cotton and Garrett McNamara were all there at 6.30 in the morning as the wave went XXL.  It was thought that Carlos Burle caught the biggest wave and surf media suggest this could be the biggest wave ever surfed. He waits for the official decision as to whether he holds the new record or not… as you can imagine, it’s quite difficult to gauge the height of a wave! Garrett McNamara is the current holder of the record…

Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira did not walk away unscathed having taken a 70 ft dump. Beaten but not bowed she sends a thank you to her fans from her hospital bed: “My dear friends, a broken ankle. Nothing more… Some salt water, but you know! I just need some prayer for a speedy recovery!!”
