This is the biggest wave ever surfed

Nature always makes you feel small.

Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa surfed a record-setting 80-foot wave from trough to crest in November 2017 in Praia do Norte, off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. The 38-year-old Koxa is the official world record-holder for riding the biggest wave ever.

Nazaré is renown for hosting surfing competitions every winter where the waves can get up to 98 feet.

Just look at the lighthouse and onlookers in perspective to the surfer surrounded by the mountainous wave, or shall we say avalanche.

Watch it for yourself after the jump.

A timelapse of the Pas-de-Calais region

The Pas-de-Calais department hired a creative agency to promote travel to Northern France.

After taking 350,000 photos, the result is a beautiful look in both timelapse and hyperlapse formats at the diversity of the Pas-de-Calais region’s environment with an emphasis on architecture, landscape, and sport.

This video project was commissioned by the Pas-de-Calais department to promote its territory. While waiting for an original and creative idea, we opted for a dynamic video only realized in timelapse and in hyperlapse.

Through various themes (nature, memory, sport, …) we have, for two months, crisscrossed the Pas-de-Calais to capture the best of this beautiful department.
3 intense minutes to make you want to discover or rediscover this space so rich, conducive to change of scenery and the meeting of a marked culture.

The different angles of the Dr. J layup

These photos show how the incredible width and versatility of the legendary Dr. J. who literally went around and above the rim.

As you can see in the second picture, he’s holding the ball nearly out of bounds while flying up under the hoop.

The only other players that could pull these acrobatics off were George Gervin and in his own style, the floating Airness himself, Michael Jordan.
