Big Wave Wipeout and Jetski Rescue gone wrong @ Nazaré, Portugal [Andrew Cotton & Hugo Vau]

As seen on the news: A terrifying video has emerged from Portugal of British surfer Andrew Cotton crashing in giant waves and the failed attempt to rescue him. In the clip, which was filmed in Nazare last month on December 17, 2016, Cotton rides a huge wave but falls as the white water catches up with him. A rescue jet ski, driven by his team partner and professional surfer Hugo Vau, struggles to find Cotton in the mass of white water and Cotton is forced to duck under another monster wave. Eventually Vau finds Cotton but as he's preparing to drive them out of danger, a third enormous wave crashes into them, capsizing the jet ski and knocking both men into the water. Luckily the surfers were able to swim to safety and no serious injuries were reported. _________________________ Filmed and Edited by: Pedro Miranda Featured Surfers: Andrew Cotton and Hugo Vau http://www.plmiranda.com http://fb.com/plmirandaphoto @plmiranda on Instagram __________________________ The footage in this video is being managed by Newsflare.

Never should have even have started on that wave. Weren't they even monitoring the surf and the break? They were not ridable...

you cant get any decent thrust out of the hole from the ski in white water like that, that mixed with the current sucking you back and they didnt have much of a chance from a full stop start like that.

The funny thing is he cannot wait to get back out into it. These people live for it (the adreneline of surfing big waves) and it is how they feel alive. They also know that mother nature usually has the final say but are willing to roll the dice.

No he's not. He has done this before, riding a wave from the wrong place at the wrong time. He will end up really hurt one day.

Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about. Andrew Cotton is one of the most experienced big wave surfers out there.

I hope your are joking . Cause otherwise your an idiot. Even the the most trained surfers in the world struggle in waves of this size and often have to be rescue too...

awesome footage man. It is really hard to find angles like this that put into context what these surfers have to endure when a huge body of water engulfs them.
