When a clip of one of Europe’s gnarliest big waves drops, you have a certain image of what to expect. What’s so great about ‘After The Storm’ is that it actually takes you by surprise and offers a completely different insight into surfing Nazare.
This clip which was filmed and edited by Jorge Leal, features a whole crew of big wave all-stars, including Andrew Cotton, taking on some classic Nazare after a storm on the 16th December.
It involves all of the carnage that comes from surfing Nazare, but it also lets you in on what happens behind the scenes, in terms of what the guys do to prepare for a surf and what their mind-set is like.
It also happens to be edited in quite a beautiful way, which is in complete contrast to the monstrous waves seen throughout.
Although this clip technically dropped two weeks ago, it’s so good that it becomes this week’s ‘Clip of the Week’.
