Huge waves in the Portuguese Nazaré

There are not so many places on the Earth where really big waves are not an exception, but a rule. And the town of Nazare in Portugal is one of those places.

Unusual underwater geography near Nazare makes this coastal city a real Mecca for surfers. It was here that champion Garrett McNamara set the record on a wave of 31 meters high. And this winter was especially unusual in terms of wave height.

In the next video, you can see what is happening in Nazare right now. This is a rather eerie sight, where surfers seem small and fragile against a background of colossal waves.
