Ross Clark-Jones, Andrew Cotton and Garrett MacNamara tackled the infamous wave of Praia do Norte.


It was one of the biggest swells of the European winter, and the Nazaré Canyon did its usual stellar job of funnelling all of that energy into 10-storey buildings in front of Europe's best-looking lighthouse.

Ross Clarke-Jones and Andrew Cotton were but two of the maniacs who formed part of the crew that Garrett Macnamara headed up, and while things started out as paddle-oriented, once the swell fully formed the jetskis came out to play, even getting a little too close for comfort on one Tom Lowe wave. Rest assured that somehow everyone escaped that little incident unharmed.
