A tiny Portuguese town famous all over the world. It was here, off the coast of nazaré rise incredibly huge waves, sometimes reaching 30 meters in height, reports Rus.Media.
Every year it attracts suicides from around the world. In 2011, Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara set a record here, having won a wave of 24 meters. Two years later, he surpassed himself, and subjugated a 30-meter giant.
But where do such waves? The thing is that near the coast of nazaré is the largest submarine chasm of Europe. The nazaré canyon extends from the plains of the Atlantic ocean to the coast.
Thus it turns out that the wave takes a running start down the long and narrow canyons and in no way stopped gets to Nazar. But here, the shoreline, the bottom goes up dramatically: like the ocean tide crashed into the wall and in a twinkling forms a giant wave.
