Watch: RCJ on the rocks at Nazare
It may have a better wall on it, but here's why surfers rarely go right at Nazare. Today Ross Clarke-Jones, who's been holed up at Nazare for the better part of the season, whipped right on a medium-size wave only to get caught in the "death zone".
With his vest inflated RCJ pinballs around the inter-tidal zone before making it ashore and waving the white flag.
"I think I'm done for Nazare's season, " says a deflated Ross afterwards. "I'm gonna call it a day - just look at castles or something."
For the record, RCJ is 51-years old.
