What you'll do

Explore the amazing town of Nazare and its giant waves, over 30 m (100 ft) in height - holding the Guinness world records for the biggest wave ever surfed. If you like nature, ocean and the stunning photos, this is a perfect experience for you:

- Transport from your everyday life into the spectacular Portuguese ocean landscape, and feel its beauty and energy from your comfortable home

- Discover the unbelievable giant wave surfing contest, its history and stories and how is it possible for a human to survive riding these waves

- Learn about the hidden science beyond this unique phenomenon and underwater canyon that creates monster waves

I will guide you on this journey with stories, photos and videos - from the town beach to the headland with amazing view at 110m (360 ft), and downhill to the famous Praia do Norte, its grottos and iconic lighthouse fortress: the only place in the world to watch the giant wave surfing from so close distance!
We will even go down the fortress steps, closest possible to the big waves - places often inaccessible because of the danger, and you can visit it from the safety of your home.

I want to bring you the energy and magic of this place where the ocean really comes alive, and inspire you to visit it one day.

I'm a freelance specialist in tourism marketing & IT, living between Portugal and Croatia for the last 4 years - since I have discovered the town of Nazare with the amazing natural phenomenon: the largest waves in the world, reaching over 30 m (100 ft) in height.

In these years in Nazare, I have learned about the hidden science beyond the biggest European underwater canyon and geomorphological features that create giant waves, about the history and stories of the unbelievable Nazare surfing challenge, when the world’s best surfers gather here to ride the biggest wave, trying to break the Guinness world record. And I learned how to read the weather forecast to predict the coming of giant waves.

I want to bring to your home the energy of this magical place, share this amazing experience with you and inspire you to visit it one day.

The waves at Nazare are truly magnificent. Vedran led a very well-rounded experience; I got to visit the beautiful town of Nazare, learned what makes the waves and surfing here so special, heard Vedran's personal story with the waves, discovered the best and secret spots to watch the waves, and saw the waves and surfers in action with his own photos and short films. Highly recommended!

My family visited Portugal last summer but was unable to see the giant waves of Nazare. Our guide showed us the beauty of the waves and explained the science behind it. It was fun to share the experience virtually with my parents (who live in another state). After this experience, we are definitely planning a trip there (once it is safer to travel).

It was fascinating finding out about the biggest waves in the world. Vedran's passion shined through and it really made me want to visit Navares and take up surfing! The videos were the icing on the cake. Thanks Vedran!

What a rush! Seeing those waves and hearing about Vedran's near death experience almost being swept away was literally like being there. Forget the blue giant waves of Hawaii and Australia, for sheer power, majesty and danger, there's nothing like Nazare!
