MAYA GABEIRA’S BRUSH WITH DEATH – YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT!
The team knew the winds would be tricky when the large swells hit Nazaré off Portugal. They went out early – Maya was in control on the first and second bump… but suddenly everyone lost sight of her. The wave was double the size anything Maya had ever ridden, very bumpy and VERY fast. Could she cope and surf through it?
Her ankle was the first casualty on the fourth bump. With a broken ankle – she didn’t have a chance of remaining standing on her surf board against the bumps and speed. Her face first fall into the wave lead to pounding and blackness. Once on the surface, she couldn’t see and was in serious trouble.
