WATCH: Daredevil surfers ride waves taller than multi-storey buildings on Iberian Peninsula

Wave

HURRICANE Epsilon has generated some of the largest waves ever recorded in Nazare, Portugal on the Iberian Peninsula.

And adrenaline junkies have taken to the sea to tackle waves taller than multi-storey buildings.

Hundreds of spectators gathered to watch the fearless surfers as they rode the record-breaking waves.

Nazare is famed for its surf. On November 2 The World Surf League (WSL) is scheduled to host many of the world’s greatest surfers at the Nazare Tow Surfing Challenge.

This particular spot generates monstrous waves due to a deep underwater canyon that interferes with the swell.

Responsible for the monstrous waves, the canyon is an impressive 3 miles deep.
