Another day, another Nazaré wipeout.
This time it’s Australian big wave champion Russel Bierke that fell victim to the monstrous waves of the famed Portugal shore break. If you recall, Bierke had a freak accident last year that almost cost him his life if not for Kelly Slater and company. Few months after, he was back on his board and saying that his near-death experience did not turn him off big waves at all.
True to his words, Bierke braved Nazaré’s waters in an attempt to conquer the beast. Unfortunately, the unruly slabs proved too much for the young surfer and in true Nazaré fashion, the onslaught continued after Bierke falls off his board.
