A big swell hit Europe a couple days ago and Shane Dorian and Jamie Mitchel met it in Portugal. This wave, called Belharra, off the coast of Nazare, looks like a wave unlike many of the premier big waves in the world. The wave seems to stand-up and crest for a long time before breaking. Could be more dangerous because it’s unpredictable, or less dangerous because it’s not hollow, although I have no idea because I’ve never been there.
At any rate, the 3 minute mark looks pretty brutal!
Stoked my buddies Jamie Mitchel and Shane Dorian made it out of that session laughing!
