Surfer, Who Conquered the Wave in Portugal, had to be Saved Twice


A huge wave on a beach in the Portuguese town of Nazaré almost swallowed a surfer. Rescuers on the hydrocycle rushed to help, but overturned on the road, so they also needed to be saved.

Fortunately, as a result, all the heroes of this story remained intact. The beach of Praia do Norte, where the incident occurred, is known for the fact that it was here in 2013 where American surfer Garrett McNamara had beaten the world record by subduing a wave 30.5 m high.
