Jetsurf Nazaré Big Wave Challenge by Jeff Scott – By Jetsurfing Nation Official Contributor of Motosurf Nation
7 am , 2°C in Portugal, Jeff Scott meet with Mike — our official contributor from Jetsurfing Nation — to set his own personal record and challenge the biggest wave ever surfed with a jetboard. To do so, Jeff chose the mythical spot of Nazaré in Portugal well known by every respectable rider and must take advantage of a two-hour window from 8 till 10 with “good” conditions. Breathtaking video trailer in this article.
NAZARE KNOWN AS A JETSURF SPOT?
Nazare in Portugal is a big wave spot in winter that only very skillful, experienced and confident riders dare facing. EXTREME WAVES and conditions guaranteed. NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS OR INTERMEDIATES WHEN IT’S BIG.
The potential of Nazaré is insane thanks to a finger of deep water pointing directly at the beach to the north of town resulting in a huge, heavy and hollow beach peaks for the brave, similar to La Nord in Hossegor.
MEET WITH JEFF SCOTT
We’ve been looking out for this chance for about six months, checking for the right conditions for a while, there was quite a lot of preparation for this event with test ride, rescue team and talk with Nuno Santos.
