Great wave. Beautiful wave. Amazing ride. Possibly for gorgeous old M.
But not a patch on Nazare.

The significance is that he paddled into it, no jet ski tow assistance.

Nazare doesn't barrel like that. This might be a contender

Not taking anything away from this classic wave....but it just goes to show the size of Nazare.
People do paddle out to Nazare when it’s this size.
But it’s too dangerous to paddle out at Nazare when it’s at its biggest. Ski or kite only.
