Huge swells hits Nazaré on New Year's Day
Nazaré is a place like no other. And when the North Atlantic swells arrive at the local underwater canyon, waves become an uncontrollable force of nature.
On New Year's Day, a group of hardcore Praia do Norte habitués challenged the first liquid beasts of 2018 under sunny blue skies.
Watch Sebastian Steudtner, Ross Clarke-Jones, Lucas Chumbo, Jarryd Foster, Axi Muniain, Mick Corbett, and Jerome Sahyoun hit the lineup at Portugal's best big wave surfing break.
