Forecasts for next Friday suggest a festival in Praia do Norte.
With two editions of the Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge held this winter plus the historic swell of January 8th, many would think that the present big wave season could be over or very close to it. Pure mistake!
Despite the fact that March is just around the corner, the month that traditionally marks the end of the season, storms continue to form in the North Atlantic and this means that the Nazaré Canyon has not yet entered hibernation mode.
And judging by the predictions, the best might actually be saved for last. For the next few days, a new giant swell is expected to enter, which is already generating a lot of expectations. The legendary Garrett McNamara, say so.
According to the latest chart from the website ‘Magicseaweed’, this swell could be even bigger than the one that was verified at the beginning of the year. And this one was already resounding and gave a lot to talk about. In this way, a lot of excitement around Praia da Norte is expected in the coming days with the big riders warming up their engines for D-day. All eyes are on next Friday, February 25th.
For there, favorable offshore winds are expected, with the entry of a wave of practically 5 meters, from the Northwest quadrant, with a period of 18 seconds. Conditions to be verified promise to provide a historic journey in Praia do Norte and who knows where world records may be beaten.
