Unbelievably dangerous surfing

Tow-in session of January 28th in Nazare, Portugal. / 28.01.2013 from Band-Originale on Vimeo.

From Kottke who provides this info:

The waves aren’t quite as big as 100 feet, but the sequence starting at 1:52, where the guy falls off his board and swims like hell to get out of the way before the whole ocean crashes down on top of him (watch the top of the wave), gives you a real sense of how insane this sport is.
