Portugal From Above

From Ericeira to Nazaré, this compilation of drone footage captures it all

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?
