Nazaré Big Wave Tow Surfing Challenge RECAP

It was a monumental day in Portugal as the Nazare Tow Surfing Challenge Presented by Jogos Santa Casa went off in 40- to 50-foot surf.
19 of the most elite big wave surfers were paired up in tow teams to battle it out in a six-hour, no-elimination expression session.
In a new format, where winners were judged by their fellow competitors at an athlete reception afterwards, the Rides of the Day went to Kai Lenny and Justine Dupont.
The Best Team award went to the “Young Bulls” — comprised of KAI Lenny and Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca.
And finally, the well-earned Commitment Award went to the badass, hard-working Water Safety Team.

Featuring surfing from Kai Lenny, Alex Botelho, Andrew Cotton, Maya Gabeira, Sebastian Steudtner, Pedro Scooby, Rodrigo Koxa, Benjamin Sanchis, Francisco Porcella, Axier Muniain, and Justine Dupont.

Ever catch yourself yelling at the screen like it’s going to make a difference? Just wondering because that what I was just doing with this vid. So funny. “Watch out….get out of there…holy sh#t.”….as if the surfers could hear me.

What TF Kai Lenny on the first wave with the flips, 360, and the elevator drop…This guy either has rocks in his head or is a sea turtle.
