Alex Botelho Survives Jet Ski Incident at 2020 WSL Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge

Went to Nazare in 2014. The waves when you are there look like mountains.


Big Wave Surfer Alex Botelho was involved in a very serious incident during the Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge. He was rushed to the hospital and we now have an update on his condition. Currently, he is stable and conscious. He will stay at the hospital for further evaluation.


The waves there looked insane because small ones look like they could destroy you. Forget about the 100ft towers.

Off the shore of Nazare is an underwater canyon that boosts the swell.


Blacks Beach in San Diego has similar canyons, it makes for some fun surprise cleanup sets from outside.
