Alex Botelho survives a horrific big wave incident at Nazaré

Portuguese big wave surfer Alex Botelho nearly lost his life after being involved in a serious incident in the impact zone at Praia do Norte.

The breathtaking moment took place ten minutes before the end of the 2020 Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge, held in Portugal.

Hugo Vau, Botelho’s teammate, was driving the jet ski toward the beach to rescue his partner but got clipped by a huge shore break wave on the inside.
