Nazare, Portugal

 (JPG) Nazare, Portugal (395,131 bytes) ( 1,688 x 1,119 )
The fishing and tourist village of Nazare, Portugal was practically unknown, until 2000, when surfers first braved its monstrous winter waves. Since then, world records for surviving surfing the 30m+ high waves have fallen, and movies have been made, celebrating the brave (crazy?) surfers willing to risk their lives to challenge the world’s tallest waves. Sediment highlights off-shore current patterns in the image. The image was acquired November 24, 2009, covers an area of 18 by 25.7 km, and is located at 39.6 degrees north, 9.1 degrees west.
