This wasn’t any ordinary day in Nazare, this was one of the bigger swells of the season. After setting off on the wave, Toby Cunningham was unable to clear the tail end of this massive 50-60 foot monster. With nearly 25 years of big wave surfing experience, Toby knows that keeping a cool head is the most important thing in a situation like this. With his ears still ringing after taking 6 set waves on the head, Toby stated “I knew that I was just along for the ride … it was actually a lot of fun getting my a** kicked”!
