Nazare Ceremony Irish Big Wave Surfer Al Mennie.
In 2010, before the International surfing world or general public knew of Nazare as the biggest surf spot on earth, Irish Big Wave Surfer Al Mennie was part of the original surf team that worked in conjunction with the City of Nazare and the locals in an attempt to pioneer the big waves of Praia do Norte. Over the first few seasons their mission was documented in a video and stills series titled 'The North Canyon Show'. In 2018 Al was invited by the CEO of Praia do Norte, Carlos Filipe, and The Mayor of Nazare, Walter Chicharro, to attend a ceremony and display a surfboard and a plaque on the 'Surfer Wall', inside the iconic Lighthouse that stands defiantly in the face of the biggest waves in the world at Praia do Norte. https://www.visitportugal.com/en/content/praia-do-norte-nazare https://www.instagram.com/al_mennie/?hl=en https://praiadonortenazare.pt/surfer/al-mennie/ https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2580706/
