Last week, we saw what Nazaré can do when things don’t go entirely as planned when Andrew Cotton broke his back after getting blasted by the wave. Alternatively, supsquatching is also always an option. When Aussie mastermind Josh Kerr showed up at Nazaré a few days ago, he was ill prepared with no board or flotation.

That monstrous wave not only snapped her tibia but almost drowned her. It was an
