Video: Abraham Hochstrasser Freerides The Nazaré Cannon


In the past 2 weeks the picturesque village of Nazaré has been shaken by something different; this time it was not the giant wave surfers, enfacing once again the world-famous “cannon”, but rather something unique in world terms: a man and his Jetski challenging the Atlantic in its greatest demonstration of strength and power.

Abraham Hochstrasser, a Mexican professional Freerider, famous for the tricks he performs at high altitude, were in Portugal to surf and fly in Praia do Norte, in a promotional Freeride action, together with a wide team of vídeo capture professionals who will visit during the year various parts of the globe collecting images for a super production about the giant waves and those who dare to confront them.

“It is so scary. The impact of waves on this site is brutal!” – said Abraham on the first day that he surfed at Praia do Norte, a 35-minute journey in which he faced waves of about 7 meters. And that was just the beginning.

As days goes by, the ocean gained new proportions as it entered through February, but the Mexican refused to stay ashore, and wrote a new story to join many others that make these waves the most famous of the World.
