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:

Spectacularly scary!

Saint-Malo, a walled French town on the coast of Brittany, has some of the highest tides in Europe.

Water can rise 12 meters over the course of six hours. When the water goes out, it reveals several kilometers of ocean floor. But during the high tide the beach can disappear completely.

The highest tides, also known as Spring tides, occur at the time of the full and the new moon, when the Moon and the Sun are in alignment with the Earth and their gravity is addictive.
