Surfing the Unsurfable! How we surfed possibly the biggest wave ever at Nazare

On February 24. 2024, my team and I surfed the unsurfable. After years of training and developing Mission Wave Alpha, we rode the biggest waves of my life, and together with my team and partners we defined what’s possible.

I am Sebastian Steudtner, Big Wave Explorer and Guinness World Record holder, together with my team and partners, I went on a mission to define whats possible riding the biggest waves in the world. Mission Wave Alpha was created three years ago to level up the sport of big wave surfing. This meant to develop the Nazare safety system, understanding the energy of waves, develop a new surfboard concept to match the speed of the waves, just to name a few of the key pillars of the project. After many ups and downs on February 24. 2024 when the biggest and most challenging waves in years rolled into Nazare, we finally had the opportunity to see what is possible. This is the result!

„Storm surfing, hmm hmm, let‘s see.“ Love it! What a protagonist – what a great team, and even great storytelling, videographing and editing! Congratulations! What the hell comes next?

Biggest big wave surfer out there, and yet only 5k followers. It's a shame. You're even putting out high quality content :/
