Epic drama unfolds as Carlos Burle sets possible record while surfing massive Nazaré.
Oh dear. Somebody call Guinness. A bombing swell just hit Nazaré, and guess who was there? A quartet of Brazilian Red Bull athletes, including tow partners Carlos Burle and Maya Gabeira as well as Pedro Scooby Viana and Felipe Cesarano, towed into some mutants on Monday. Carlos Burle stole headlines, however, after riding one of the biggest waves ever.
Is this a 100-foot wave? Maybe, maybe not. But, if nothing else, Carlos is a frontrunner for the prestigious Billabong XXL Awards.
Carlos gives his own dramatic account of the day’s events in an interview at STAB Magazine.
And just how big was that final wave of the day?
“I don’t want to be the one who calls it,” he says. “It’s hard to tell. Someone else can tell me how big it was (laughs).“
