If you didn’t know any better, you might guess the video above is of a few chargers hitting the outer reefs in Hawaii. Then, you look a little closer, notice everyone’s wearing fullsuits, and you’re suddenly not sure where these guys are surfing. As it turns out, the Canary Islands were hammered by swell last week, and a spot in northern Tenerife was doing its best Waimea impression.
Here’s the story from the video description: “A very large swell rushed over the Canary Islands on January 28, 2017, and in northern Tenerife a group of surfers attacked some of the biggest waves of the year. Respect and admiration to those brave ones who dare with these enormous waves and to the human team that is behind them.”
