Lucas Chumbo
by Octavio Passos

The big wave surfer Lucas Chianca “Chumbo” from Brazil rides a wave during the TUDOR Nazare Tow Surfing Challenge at Praia do Norte. The ocean rises up behind him like an impenetrable wall; the athlete’s figure appears insignificant in front of the majesty of nature. The sunlight breaks on the crest of the wave, creating amber reflections.
