Zon North Canyon Show

The result of the Garrett McNamara exploratory mission in the waves of Praia do Norte, Nazaré, Portugal, taking place between 2010 and 2012.

This surf movie shows the power of the waves of the Portuguese coast, as well as the determination of the Hawaiian big wave surfer to ride the biggest waves on the Planet.

The main goal of Garrett in Nazaré was to explore its waves - with special attention to Praia do Norte's waves, which receive the effect of the geomorphologic phenomenon known as "Nazaré Canyon."

The canyon is so unique because it is one of the only ones in the whole world that ends on the shore allowing the power of the water and swell to make it to the beach without losing any energy or size.

Garrett was invited to explore the wave to see if it had the potential for a big wave event.
