On September 14th, 2017, the announcement of the Nazaré Challenge of the Big Wave Tour in Nazaré was officially announced, an event that will take place for the second consecutive year in Praia do Norte. “It’s the achievement of a goal, and Nazaré’s recognition as” an inescapable asset, probably the best place for WSL to stage a Big Wave Tour stage, “said Walter Chicharro, Mayor of Nazaré.
João Macedo, who reached the final in the 2016 edition of the Nazaré Challenge, said it was “a great honor” to be one of the ambassadors of this Giant Waves World Championship in Nazaré.
“We are in the top places of world surfing. We have an incredible natural resource, which is our beaches, our waves and strong human resources that allow us to take advantage of this, “he said.
For his part, António Silva, another finalist of the 2016 edition of Nazaré Challenge, considers “an honor and a pride to be in this race, the most demanding of the whole circuit. The North Beach is that mystic and I feel very honored to be here another year. Unlike other destinations, the Nazaré wave has a lot of consistency, derived from the submarine cannon. We will have, during the waiting period, several days in which the championship can be made.
