When we saw the surf was this big, something crazy kicked in and made us get in. On second thoughts we should have avoided it. This shot was taken from a cliff top at a beach called Carapateira in Portugal. Half an hour later one of my friends had a snapped surf board. Luckily nobody was injured but we did have a flat tyre on the way home, and my camera and passport were stolen 2 days later. What a trip!
