This raw footage shows Australian Big Wave Surfer, Russell Bierke (21 ys old), charging one of the biggest waves of the day on the first peak at Nazaré during yesterday’s monster swell. Bierke’s manages to ride the most critical part of the wave but wipes out after the massive water explosion behind him, suffering an extensive hold down before resurfacing just in time to catch a quick breath before the next wave impact. The following rescue is performed by award wining Big Wave Surfer Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca from Brazil, riding a jetski Lucas is able to help Russell until he reaches the safety of the sand.

This sequence was the main highlight of the day, during the biggest session of the season so far, with waves exceeding 60 ft on the face.
