This is Tom Butler’s wave ridden in Nazare, Portugal on December 14, 2018. The conditions were perfect on this swell, perfect wind, glassy ocean (by Nazare standards), and a PUMPING swell. The charts were showing the swell at 30-35FT, which in Nazare terms that means waves excess of 65 feet! This was the biggest set of the day, and Tom with his tow partner Sebastian Steudtner were in the best possible position to score this bombing set wave.

February 7, 2019 – This was far away from maxed out Nazare, but you couldn’t have asked for more perfect conditions. The winds were low, and the swell direction was playing a perfect part to the shape of these monsters. Topping out at around 60+ feet on this day, we saw some really clean-fun waves!
They don’t make em like Gony Zubizarreta anymore. Gony was born In Argentina, raised in Spain, and relocated to Portugal to manhandle it’s slabby tubes, as seen here in the video. Gony is one of the kindest, awesome, and humble humans we have ever met. He also fucking rips. He’s got a great taste in music and supports Metal Neck like no other. We are proud and lucky to have him as a friend – Matt Tromberg
