Portugal Nazare Praia do Norte

Peaceful, right?!

These days, sunny with a light fresh salty breeze blowing from the Atlantic, when the giants are sleeping, Praia do Norte, Nazaré, is a great place for sunbathing and surfing small fun waves all the way during summer.

BUT if Neptun awakes from summer sleep and is waving his trident, summoning stormy season, you can wittness 20m high water mountains moving towards the coastline of Nazare, Portugal, apparently the spot producing the biggest ever ridden wave in the world. When the forecast is right, big wave surfers from all over the world, lead by Hawaiian big wave legend Garret McNamara, fly in and gather in the picturuesque little former fisher village Nazare.

It is hard to believe what is happening on one of these days, unless you see it with your own eyes and feel the earth trembling, when one of those 20m water giants collapse.

 

 

 

BIg Wave Nazare

Beauty and the beast

McNamara discovered this portuguese big wave spot a couple of years ago and ever since this extraordinary potential wave drew special attention of the big wave surfing community. The reason why the worlds biggest wave can be found just in front of the European coast Portugal lies within a specific ocean floor formation. An underwater canyon forms some kind of funnel and amplifies the waves by squeezing the water masses up to escape the naturual obstacle.

Back in 2011 Garett McNamara set the record for the worlds biggest ever ridden wave until then at 23.8m. Ever since, every year during winter season, between November and February – its on – and brave (and a bit insane) athletes are successfull in topping this benchmark.

Last year, Andrew Cotton took on a wave of 27m but got (b)eaten by the (Tsunami-like) whitewater just before he could get away and have the jetski pull him out to the safe zones. Save but brave!

Double trouble!

At December 11th, 2014 the forcast was promising and it was going to be day with the biggest waves produces so far. Benjamin Sanches probably win the wipeoutof the year at the Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards.

That day with him, next to other water heroes, were also Garett McNamara, surfer legend Ross Clark-Jones, Hugo Vau, german hellman Sebastian Steudtner and Eric Ribiere, who towed Benjamin into the monster, presumably the biggest wave ever (tried to) ridden in the history of surfing.

 

 

 

 

 

That day was absolutely amazing! Next time there is a 8m swell aproaching with light offshore winds, I will be there!!

Our Surfcamp is a typical portuguese cottage that fits perfectly into the rural charm of the countryside. Quiet and calm it’s the perfect spot for all those who want to escape the noisy and busy townlife for a while and focus on what really counts, the easy life of surfing 🙂 Within a walking distance of 20 minutes you can still hear the sea by night while you’re enjoying the sunset or one of our famous BBQs. Ideal for young families with children the Da Silva Surfcamp also provides you with beachcruisers and beachtransfers.

Right on the beach it doesn’t even takes you a jiffy from closing the door of our Beachhouse behind you and drop yourself into the waves of Praia Areia Branca. The Surfschool as neighbor and the promenade with all its bars, cafes and restaurants right in front of the door will ensure that you’ll always find some kind of distraction. Apart from that all kind of facilities as the bus station, small supermarkets and a cash machine are more than close to the Beach House.

Located next to the Esmoriz beach, our surf house was built right before the 50s. Although it was adapted to the actual needs (of the XXI century), the surf house still saves some of the 50s architecture lines as well as (the well known, and very) typical, Portuguese ceramic tiles. The house was built to fit its surroundings – a relaxed and confortable space with practical rooms (3 double bedrooms and a shared bathroom) and a fully equipped kitchen. Also, the surf house has a big backyard in which you can enjoy a drink, bbq, or simply relax at the sun.

Esmoriz and the little fisherman towns around it offer one of the best coastal landscapes in Portugal. Explore the inviting landscape by taking a bike ride or simply walking, and discover urban or desert beaches and different kind of waves. Experience the forest between the natural reservoir and the city park and treat yourself with delicious and traditional food. And you can always visit the city of Porto which is only a 30 minutes train ride away.

You can also find a range of various activities that will make your experience richer: yoga, massage, outdoor activities and guided tours and around the city of Porto.

Either traveling alone or with your partner, family or friends, we will make sure you have a great and unforgettable surf experience.
