    Marcelo Luna, a 33 years old professional Big Wave Surfer from Brazil, is seen taking on a monster wave in Praia do Norte during a Big Winter Swell on January 1st 2018, he manages to drop the wave successfully but later he is caught by the impact explosion in full force and disappears into the white wash, the drone captures all this sequence at close range and below the crest of the wave. Marcelo took an underwater hold down of many seconds before finally resurfacing with the help of the inflatable vest, the rescue team got him out of the impact zone moments after that, Marcelo came out of this heavy wipeout just with minor injuries.

    “This was like being eaten alive by a monster”, Marcelo told the filmmakers after the session was over, “I got lucky not to be directly under the lip of the wave during impact, otherwise this could have been a very different story, the energy of that wave was really intense and held me down for a long time” he added.

    Marcelo Luna is chasing Giant Waves in Nazaré since 2016, being one of the most active Big Wave Surfers operating in the area lately, with several WSL Big Wave Awards entries under his name, he is a regular presence when conditions go ballistic in Praia do Norte.
