Watch: Nazare // The Season's First Tow Swell
Overnight, the Naz tow comp was called off when a sea fog blew in and disappeared the lineup. Competitors couldn't see the waves, judges couldn't see the competitors, and the spectators couldn't see either.
"We think for sure that there's swell," said tour manager Jessi Miley-Dyer who had to reply on other senses to intuit it's arrival. "The swell is going to peak tonight so we're keeping the green alert on for tomorrow morning.”
In the meantime, here's Tim Bonython's footage from a few days ago. It was the first tow swell of the season, a little windy, overcast too, but visible.
