I see they wear footstraps nowdays.

Just getting down that face is a challenge on it's own, if you don't have a jetski to give you speed.
Usually it's a freefall, so you better have wings and real control.

The speed of these waves is out of this world, and your board vibrates like crazy.
You actually worry that it will tear itself apart, never mind the bumpy ride snapping the board in half.
The G-Forces on your legs turning at the bottom is.... heavy!

A real gas.

Going to the light house on a rough day would be mad in Nazare.
We were there last July and the noise of the surf was amazing.

Guinness laced their product in the 70,s with artificial chemicals to make it store longer and travel further.
Prior to that Guinness stout sold in remote locations from brewery sources was often undrinkable.
Many men often vomited after getting what was the described as a “ bad pint”
Many younger posters are entirely unaware of the shady past connected with this ugly and disreputable company.

GUINNESS IS BAD FOR YOU,

The sound of 'deep' thunder. ;)
That's exactly what it is the constant boom of the surf.
Stunning empty beaches
But no swimming because of the currents.

This will make the Hairs stand up on the back of yer Neck 😀

A great ad.

Used to see it in the cinema all the time back then.

Even better on the big screen with a proper sound system.

That first solo is not a Saxophone.

It’s a guitar with a voice effect.
The player has a tube which he blows into. And that tube is attached to an effect pedal that the guitar goes through.

As in this Peter Frampton song.
The tube is beside the microphone.

They said Saxaphone at the time, the "guitar with a voice effect" in your vid sounds a bit similar.
