This is one heck of a wipe out:
This is the terrifying moment a surfer is totally wiped out by an enormous 60 foot wave. The incredible footage was taken from the legendary surfing beach at Nazaré, off the coast of Portugal. It shows Australian big wave surfer, Russell Bierke, 21, charging one of the biggest waves of the day before being wiped out and saved by a fellow surfer. He was rescued by award-winning big wave surfer Lucas ‘Chumbo’ Chianca from Brazil, who arrived on a jet-ski to pluck him from the water.
