The largest wave ever taken with a kitesurf, which can be duly accredited, was surfed by the Portuguese Nuno Figueiredo.
The aforementioned wave reached almost 20 meters, which would be a building of approximately 7 floors
No description can compare to the beauty of the images that you could see in this video.
It took place in the wonderful paradise of the lovers of the sea called Praia do Norte, Nazaré ,(Portugal).
Born in Porto on March 29, 1977, he started to surf at the age of 14. After 10 years, he discovered kitesurfing as an option.
He continued his professional kitesurfer career by becoming three times Portuguese kitewave champion and on November 8, 2017, aged 40 and 16 practicing kitesurf, he made the world’s biggest wave with his kite at Praia do Norte.
PRAIA DO NORTE IS UNDOUBTEDLY A UNIQUE BEACH IN THE WORLD.
THE ODDS OF HAVING THE LARGEST WAVES IN THE WORLD ON SUCH A SMALL SHORE LINE ARE TINY, AND TO MAKE THE UNIVERSE OF PROBABILITIES WORSE, IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE WORLD’S LARGEST WAVE WITH THE USE OF WIND.
IN ADDITION TO THE SUBMARINE CANYON, THE GEOGRAPHIC CUT OF THE BEACH ALLOWS A LATERAL / FRONTAL WIND THAT KEEPS THE WAVES PERFECT, DESPITE THE GREAT WIND INTENSITY.
“THANK YOU NAZARÉ!”
