A well-known Brazilian daredevil has made headlines after slacklining - walking or balancing along a suspended length of flat webbing tensioned between two anchors – over the infamously huge waves that roll in from the Nazaré canyon.

Daredevil’s slackline over Nazaré’s infamous monster waves

Emerson Carvalho walked the stretch of cable between the Pedro do Guilhim (a large rock sticking out of the sea just beyond the Nazaré lighthouse) and a cliff overhanging Nazaré’s Norte beach.
To many the stunt may have seemed like a madcap move, but to Emerson Carvalho, it is a sport of balance and a way of life.
Accompanied by a group of friends, the Western Riders group, the Brazilian walked along the wire rope for a good ten metres before being knocked off by a wave.
“It’s a calculated risk; we’re not as crazy as it seems at first glance. In fact, it’s all planned down to the smallest detail”, he told the press.
