Surfing Biggest Day – Nazare November 2017

I fell in love with Nazare within hours of my first visit. Standing in front of the lighthouse watching the ocean seeing and feeling the power i knew that this place was my destiny.

My endless winter’s was now locked in. Australia from March till October & from mid October till late February with Nazare, i made my big wave dream a reality.

The thing about Nazare is there’s aways a big swell coming.
The Atlantic is the most active ocean on the planet.

Rarely in Autumn & Winter you DON’T see a storm somewhere in the Atlantic doing its thing.

So here in my time coming to this amazing place i am featuring one of the greatest days in Nazare’s big wave riding history.

On November 8, 2017, November Rodrigo Koxa tows in on a wave by Sergio Cosme with an 80-foot wall, capturing the Guinness World Record for Largest Wave Surfed with a face height of 80 feet,23 meters.

Yes, this record has now been broken by Sebastian Steudtner with his ride from 2020 which was officially confirmed as having a height of 26.21 metres or 86 feet. 6 feet bigger than Koxa’s. But when I look at all the classic days this day in November 2017 stands out as the best days I have documented here.

It was dramatic, beautiful & dangerous. Andrew Cotton broke his back, Koxa got his world record & as the day progressed the wind turned onto gale force for two of the worlds best kite surfers.
Where another world record was broken by Nuno Stu for the biggest wave Kite surfed at 24.38 meters(80 foot).

@13:59 – How does one survive that? insane. I would be dead in waves half that size.
@14:44 – Oh man – yikes. I thought he got under that. so much water moving out there …
@15:22 – A purely abusive session
@22:01 – absolute beast
@23:32 – It went from very unlucky to very very lucky (not getting sucked over)
@24:20 – beautiful
@28:36 – he did what???
@29:42 – hard to watch …
– if there's a location to see the gods, this is it

-idk about the height when they talk specific measurements though … I think they're taking advantage of the cliff angle. 60+ – not so sure about that. It's a whole lot of water – no doubt about that.
RCJ is a lifer – you can tell. He'll be surfing @ 90 with Slater
