In January 2013, António Silva caught one of the biggest waves of his life.

But the world was obsessed with the classic surfing stars. The giant wave caught at Praia do Norte put the Portuguese in a silent room, isolated from the big wave surfing arena.

Fortunately, justice has been made.

A beautiful chaos, the ultimate surfing wave, a freak of nature, the advanced surfer's testing ground, a specialty wave, the premier tube riding arena, and, ultimately, the Mecca of surfing.
