Big Waves at Nazaré
The conditions where perfect for a morning of big waves at nazaré
why are the waves at nazaré so BIG?
Nazare’s giant waves are generated by factors peculiar to that part of the European coast,At its deepest, the Nazare Canyon is some 16,000 feet from the ocean’s surface, according to the Portuguese Hydrographic Office. By contrast, the Grand Canyon in Arizona is about 6,000 feet deep at its lowest point.So, first you’ve got really deep water, and then as it approaches the shore it gets very shallow, and that enables the waves to climb really, really big all of a sudden.
