Surfer takes on 'biggest wave ever ridden' after storm - Telegraph
Gregory Alan Bolcer stashed this in Surfing Awesomeness
Yesterday was a very interesting day in Praia do Norte It was definitely huge with the waves breaking right in front of the rocks.
Maya Gabeira is the toughest water woman I have ever witnessed. She also caught one of the biggest waves of the day. She took the hardest beating I have ever seen by man or woman anywhere in the ocean and made it close to the shore all on her own. What happened after was terrible. It just shows how strong she is and how hard she trained by how well she is doing after going through what happened to her!! Thankfully she will be home from the hospital today.
Preparation is everything!!! For the last 4 years the ZON North Canyon team has been working on perfecting our safety plan. On big days we have back up for the back up. 2 safety drivers in place. A team on the cliff with walkie talkies, a team on the beach with quads and life guard. What happen to Maya yesterday was extremely unfortunate and thanks to God and everyone on the beach, especially the Nazare lifeguard Nuno for bringing her back. After having such a close call yesterday it didnt feel right to keep surfing when there were still surfers out there without back up safety so Andrew Cotton , Hugo Vau and I decided to drive 3 jet skis for safety until everyone went in incase there was another emergency.
That wave is all kinds of crazy, Greg.
Essa onda é monstruoso!
Srsly, Mãe de Deus!
