LONGLISTED FOR THE 2023 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEARJOIN THE QUEST TO SURF THE BIGGEST WAVE IN HISTORY.

In a small fishing village on the coast of Portugal, a select band of surfers take unimaginable risks, pushing the boundaries of their death-defying sport as they seek to go bigger than ever before. Their goal? To ride the Everest of the ocean - the 100-foot wave.

Journalist Matt Majendie is welcomed into the inner circle of Nazaré's tight community of big-wave surfers and extreme thrill-seekers, living among them for a season as he chronicles their incredible highs and terrifying lows.

Following the endeavours of Britain's leading big-wave surfer, a former plumber from Devon, Andrew Cotton, trailblazing Brazilian female surfer Maya Gabeira and current World Record holder German Sebastian Steudtner, as well as many others, this is a gripping read and a modern classic of sports writing.
