Professional surfers have performed amazing rides during the biggest swell since 2014 in Nazare, Portugal.

The video, captured on January 18 in Praia do Norte, shows surfers riding up to 80-ft waves and experiencing terrifying wipeouts.

According to local videographer Pedro Miranda, this swell originated from a North Atlantic storm, produced some of the biggest and heaviest waves the town has seen in years.

Writes the filmer: "The biggest waves of the day were caught by Australian veteran surfer Ross Clarke-Jones, Sebastian Steudtner from Germany and French Benjamin Sanchis.

''Maya Gabeira from Brazil may have caught the biggest wave ever surfed by a woman.''
