ON THE FIRST SUNDAY OF THE YEAR A FEW MILLIONS OF PEOPLES HAD THE CHANCE TO WATCH ON "GLOBO TV " SOME INSANE FOOTAGE THAT I CAPTURED ON THE NORTH OF THE CALIFORNIA COAST. "ESPOTE ESPETACULAR " IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST SPORT SHOWS IN SOUTH AMERICA AND THIS SEGMENT WAS ONE OF THE HIGH LIGHTS OF THAT SHOW. IT WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST WAVES EVER SEEN ON THAT AREA , AND I WAS VERY FORTUNE TO BE THERE ON THAT VERY SPECIAL DAY. HERE IS THE VIDEO LINK: (you need to copy and paste if you want to see it)
