Surfer's Dramatic Rescue in Portugal Captured on Drone Footage for The Big Ugly 

Drone footage captured the dramatic rescue of a big-wave surfer in Nazare, Portugal, on February 28.

Brazilian professional surfer Pedro “Scooby” Vianna can be seen falling off his board during a storm in Nazare, riding a wave said to have been 70 feet high, according to reports.

Vianna’s friend, Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca, can be seen riding on a jet ski to rescue him before the next wave rolled in. Vianna grabbed hold of a rear tow board latched onto the jet ski, and they sped away in an attempt to outrun the next wave.

Chianca then lost control in the choppy water, and the jet ski capsized near some rocks before another big wave set in right behind them, trapping both men in the water.

Veteran big-wave surfer Everaldo “Pato” Teixeira then got on yet another jet ski and rescued Vianna and Chianca. Neither suffered any serious injury.
