First major big wave event in Europe???

Big wave surfer Garret McNamara is in Portugal to explore the possibilities of hosting a major big wave event in the small town of Nazaré. And it looks like he's convinced ;-) Here's a link to a short video from the Portuguese news and a link to some impressive photos.

The event should take place in 2012 and would be the first major big wave event in Europe.


  1. there are several big wave spots in europe. france, spain, uk. think it's a question of getting a the money/sponsors together to organize+attract the big names. Me myself got more the feeling of: keep the big wave spots for the true surfers(no tow in...),dare devils. don't "milk it out". It's a special thing, so keep it special


  2. Well, I allways enjoy watching the Eddie....

  3. true... but that's far beyond a contest...
    That's hommage!
