Watch: Kalani Lattanzi Bodysurf Nazaré

BEST OF THE WEB

November 5, 2018 - Today was pretty dang amazing! To any mortal human, these waves are huge, dangerous, and freezing cold! BUT, Kalani Lattanzi is no average Joe. This is still considered fun and playful Nazare for Kalani. Just watching him paddle out directly in to oncoming sets is a sight to see. I asked Kalani before he paddled out where he was planning on entering the surf (some people use rip currents, or low sections to make paddling out easier), he simply said "I was just going to go straight down the middle". ...Oh... Of course, what was I thinking.

As the Double, and occasional Triple overhead sets rolled through, I just tried to keep up with my camera and drone. I spent most of the day laughing to myself when Kalani told me after he exited the water, "I have a lot of friends out in the water, friends that will give me a hand when I need it, I know these guys, but I think they like me best because I don't wear any floatation when I'm in the water." Nearly every other person that surfs Nazare wears a life jacket, inflatable vest, or even a helmet. It dawned on me that he just wears a wetsuit, fins, and a handplane... thats it. Got to be able to duck under waves!

Thats just a small window in to an average day for this hard charger. There's plenty more videos like this on the way. - JacuzziSurfer
