Black Naza - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

It's big, black, and ugly. When Nazare gets like this the locals call it 'Black Naza' and no-one heads out instead waiting for better conditions. Mick Corbett and Jarryd Foster, however, don't have the luxury of time. With their stint in Nazare drawing to a close they had to make the most of every opportunity, even one as ugly as this.

Things were more out of control than usual said videographer Pedro MIranda, the wind was strong onshore, a few waves closed out, and the inside was impossible to patrol for the security team.

Following the wipeout at 2:30 Mick said: "We lost the board and had to drive back to the harbour, get in the car and drive to the beach to pick it up and then drive back to the harbour and go back out. It's near impossible to get in and out on the ski when its this big and messy.”

Towing fat onshore heapers. Sorry boys that looks shithouse.
Especially after the Hawaiian footage lately.

Hardcore tow surfers are a rare breed . Corbs is usually very well balanced on his feet so that must have been bumpy if he fell like that

Looks gnarly. I think that was the biggest of the days they were there. Good effort for getting out though. Still Lords

Love tha Dark soundtrack, fits well;)

Uppity would love the fact that those fellas, need some real muscle in those legs to handle the bumps as well.
Kudos

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

I thought that too, but SN ran an article a little while ago with Ross Clarke Jones talking about surfing Nazare and how it was a much gnarlier wave than he first thought.

Anyone know where it is? The search function doesn't seem to be working.

“Well, for starters, to all the haters and disbelievers…that wave (Nazaré) is a real as it gets,’’ says Ross.
