A huge storm surge greater than the perfect storm of 1991 will make landfall in Ireland tomorrow morning and then the west coast of France, Azores and North Africa later in the day. This surge if weather permits will create waves in excess of 100ft in nazare which is the current big wave record.

All data depicting the surge is off the charts, forecasters have never seen anything like this before.
Please spare a thought for thoughts at work on the high seas in the Atlantic as this will be terrifying.

I see a new World record being set! I have always been a a bit of an extreme athlete and have done far more things as hobbies or businesses than most folks will ever dream of.

Those big wave surfers have some of the largest balls on the planet IMO.

I love watching wave videos... I hope everyone makes it through the storm OK, it's crazy that it won't affect North America. Hopefully there will be plenty of footage from the other places.

I hope those guys over there don't get clobbered too hard, I hope they are prepared and have their boats prepared to handle the surge.

There seems to be a migration of every big balled surfer on the planet trying to get to the west coast of France. Unfortunately we're a bit further up the channel but should see some waves in excess of 15 ft. If I get a chance I'll try and get some pics to post. Problem is we'll have sw winds so will make it very messy. The good news is the high tides are dropping off otherwise the flooding etc the islands just experienced would have been a lot worse.

Unfortunately lives have already been lost in the latest round of bad weather around the uk. Mostly people trying to photograph the previous surge and getting washed out to sea.
The RNLI have been busy and have had to rescue people who defied the authorities.

Portugal had someone ride what most would call the first 100' wave ever ridden last year. This storm is much stronger. However the wind my be too strong for the more exposed big wave spots to set any more records. I've been looking at the swell charts at surfline.com and it is truly amazing how strong this system.

Big wave surfing is one of the most dangerous sports in the work, hopefully everyone plays it safe. If you would tell people back in the 1990's that Europe would be become the premier big wave spot and have the world's first ridden 100' wave, almost everybody in the surfing world would have laughed at you. Now it is hands down the go to place for the biggest surf in the world!

Darwinism at it's best.

Amazing people can be so stupid. Those who are not familiar with heavy ocean conditions need to stay away. The surge can come up faster than anyone can run!

Here is a shot of Nazare. The surfer is Carlos Burke and this maybe his 100'+ wave from last year. This storm could produce even larger rideable surf:
