Extreme Surf
Adolfo Enríquez Calo

In Nazaré (Portugal) the largest waves in the world are formed. The phenomenon of giant waves is due to the Nazaré Canyon, a submarine valley with a depth of about 5,000 meters and an extension of 230 km. Its funnel shape, narrowing in the Playa do Norte, is what causes the huge waves that have reached heights of 30 meters ideal for the most extreme surf.
