Kitesurf in the waves – Nazaré
Since the origins of kitesurfing, some people have considered the possibility of sailing with a kite, the biggest waves on the planet. This blog entry it is one of them.
When this word, Nazaré, is heard, it immediately brings to mind the Christian religion … Jesus of Nazareth.
But no, there is another Nazaré, a small town in Portugal half an hour’s drive from Lisbon.
The beach is huge, like almost all the beaches in Portugal, the water is cold and there it is where we find the famous internationally renowned wave that forms on the other side of the right cliff of the beach.
The wave is considered to be perhaps the most important in Europe
and even the largest in the world under certain favorable sea conditions.
In the wave of Nazaré have made contests, but this mini blog entry is about kitesurfing, because a kitesurfer has surfed the wave, and of course, it must be done the inevitable honors
