French big wave surfer Justine Dupont is seen surfing a potentially record-breaking wave in Nazaré, Portugal.
On Wednesday, November 13, Dupont, 28, had spent the day in the cold water, surfing for hours on end. Seeing others heading back, she decided to try it one last time.
“We’d already been in the water for four hours. We were freezing and wanted to leave. Our mate Andre, who was on the cliff with the radio, told us a big set was coming,” explains Dupont.
