Jet ski driver completes incredible rescue of big wave surfer at Nazaré

The high five at the end just says it all.

The drone footage was captured at praia do Norte beach, near the fishing village of Nazaré, in Portugal (which became famous worldwide in 2011, when Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara set a world record for the largest wave ever surfed at 78 feet/24 m).

Brazilian surfer Lucas Chumbo and his teammate Ian Cosenza (on the Jet-ski) were nearly caught by an approaching wave but end up making a dramatic last minute escape.

Moments like this can easily go south, if the jet ski driver isn’t able to accelerate fast enough away from the pursuing mass of white water, traveling at great speed towards them, like in the videos below:

Breathtaking: K2 – The World’s Most Dangerous Mountain | Eddie Bauer

Eddie Bauer

This is a great documentary. Even more incredible, seeing that that Eddie Bauer mountain guides Adrian Ballinger and Carla Perez have done this feat without the use of supplemental oxygen.

We’re just disappointed there was no mention of Nirmal Purja (Nims) and his team being an integral part, as they had reached the summit hours before and helped, at the very least, to clear the path.

(Also, it has always bother us the lack of appreciation/recognition for Nepalese mountaineers whose efforts are too often eclipsed in these documentaries and/or by media coverage of western climbers.)

Does not take away from the breathtaking feat that the Eddie Bauer’s team accomplished but would have been a bit more honest.
