There’s nothing quite like the footage that drones are producing these days. Take this clip, for instance. Whether it be a shot of Portugal’s beautiful coastline or that of the monster waves at Nazaré, the bird’s-eye view brings about a whole new perspective that is hard not to appreciate. Swell direction, reef formation, and intricacies in lineups are suddenly visible when shot from above in such a way. As you decide if you’re for or against the advancement of film technology in our sacred sport of surfing, why not sit back and enjoy this clip in the meantime?
