    What a setting though. Normally you see them having to catch monster waves 2 miles off shore. I love that back-drop... fantastical...

    the last few waves they rode which actually broke whist they were on them were truly awesome.....must have been like an elevator drop

    LOL at the music......Carmina Burana.....

    Nazare is a fab moorish influenced fishing town kinda place..took me back with that guy wearing the checked shirt slipping on the snood/pom pom....it was kind of a uniform amongst the fisherfolk there many years ago....I wonder if they still wear it

    The guy that towed him in on the jet ski was the American that was on the biggest wave ever recorded from 2011 until this storm. These two guys alternated towing and surfing each other. Monster waves that almost killed a Brazilian lass.
