  • Portugal's Lesser Known Big Wave Surf Spot!

    Known for its powerful, heavy, long, and perfect waves, Madeira Island is seen by many as the Hawaii of the Atlantic. Surrounded by crystal-clear blue waters and covered lush subtropical vegetation it plays the part all too well. But the absence of big crowds, the fine wine culture, the boulder-riddled beaches, the delicious food and the general look and vibe of Madeira, really sets it all apart. For this trip Nic Von Rupp scored the biggest and better aligned swell we’ve seen here in years. It was a Day of Days at Jardim do Mar, arguably the best big wave pointbreak in the world.

    Joined by fellow riders, Hawaiian Big Wave Charger, Torrey Meister, Grant “Twiggy” Baker, Miguel Blanco, Louren?o Katzenstein and Portuguese young gun, Joao Maria Mendonca and with a shooting crew on a boat, it was an unique day captured under a never seen before angle in beyond perfection sort of day.
