Surfing at Nazaré is a risky proposition, but the jetskiers responsible for towing surfers into waves can usually get them to safety post-wipeout. Sometimes things can get dicey, though, as seen in this video from Pedro Miranda.
The clip shows 51-year-old big wave surfer Salvador Villas Boas taking a massive wipeout in one of Nazare's most dangerous zones. Seeing Salvador in a perilous situation, veteran jetski driver Ramon Laureano came flying in to pick him up before the next wave broke. From there, it was a full-throttle race against the crashing wave. They end up getting capsized by the whitewater, but both manage to swim to shore unscathed.
