History is made in moments large and small. But the last week of December showed Nazaré’s teeth in full form. First came the carnage of the Nazaré Challenge, where Jamie Mitchell led a collection of the world’s best big-wave surfers in macking (even for Naz), unruly conditions. Then came the free-surf session on Thursday, December 22.
Facing similar conditions as those for the Challenge, our man on the ground, Alex Laurel, wanted to bring Nazaré to our eyes like we’ve never seen it before. So he teamed up with Timelapse-Media in the water, and Maquina Voadora-Producoes in the sky. Witness one of the most dramatic paddle sessions ever at Praia do Norte, from land, sea and drone.
