The Inertia

If you follow surfing, even just a little bit, it’s very likely you’re aware of what happened on January 8 at Nazaré. Nic von Rupp said the day after that it was “some of the biggest, most perfect” waves he’d ever seen.

Nic, of course, has established himself as a Nazaré standout. When it’s big, he’s on it. It’s a relatively small crew of people who can call themselves Nazaré locals, and Nic is definitely one of them. And since he’s a Nazaré local who loves surfing massive waves who also happens to have a vlog, we’ve been waiting patiently for his account of what happened that day. Well, it’s here. And it’s as impressive as we expected.


Only the best. We promise.
