Nazaré in Portugal is home to the biggest wave on the planet. And Canadian-American Jake Smith, at 16, smashed the ceiling on the possible when he rode a towering 50ft icy face earlier this year, becoming one of the youngest big wave surfers in history.
Beaming bright-eyed and infinitely optimistic, we’ve never met a teen of such steely self-belief and such incredibly humble beginnings - but as we stepped back to understand how, our respect and love for this young man just bloomed.
Join us in conversation with Jake as we explore why, talking about the impact of a nomadic lifestyle, the power of brotherhood, home values, and the limitless journey he dreams to embrace.
If you’d like to support Jake on his big wave journey, here’s a link to his GoFundMe. https://tinyurl.com/4tm5uyaf
