It's always interesting to watch people that are great at what they do, knowing that there is probably an entire story of learning, failures, and short comings that proceeded that moment. Life takes discipline and repetition to become great at anything.
it was sick being next to these heavy close-outs 💣
pumping 15ft+ faces just on the sheltered inside beachbreak
lifeguards were on high alert just to ensure nobody would get hit and then dragged out to sea
which could have easily happened due to strong winds and currents
This wave was so big the surfer got an efforts award! 😱

Filmer @polvo32 captured what might be the biggest wave surfed at Nazare by @hugovau, working as a team with @alex_botelho and @marcelolunaoficial. “We went in the morning, and we spent more or less four hours for that wave, because we knew the peak of the swell was around the afternoon – almost around sunset,” videographer Jorge Leal told The Inertia. “Around 4 PM I called @hugovau to let him know about a giant set at a place that we call ‘Big Momma.’ It’s a spot that only breaks with special conditions. After the call, I start filming blind, because of the mist created by the waves before. Even so, we spotted @hugovau and @alex_botelho’s jetski on the left corner of the clip. It was a full team effort with @marcelolunaoficial. For those surfers that saw the wave on the water, they said it was the biggest ever seen at North Beach.” #instaswell#surfsomething#bigwaves
