Nic von Rupp über den krassesten Tag seines Lebens

In Nazaré hat Nic von Rupp an der ersten Big Wave Tow Challenge der WSL mitgemacht. Nach einigen Monster-Sets und jeder Menge Glücksgefühle musste er mit ansehen, wie Alex Botelho beinahe ums Leben kam.

In seiner neuen VLOG-Reihe “Life of Von Froth” nimmt uns Nic von Rupp mit hinter die Kulissen der Big Wave Challenge in Nazaré. Seht im Video, was in seinem Kopf abging, bevor er in die größte Welle der Welt droppte und wie er den Moment erlebte, als sein Kumpel Alex Botelho beinahe sein Leben verlor.

Das sagt Nic selber über den Tag: “The day of the Nazare Challenge was really good, my partner Porcella and I were really in sync both riding some big waves and having load of fun. After three heats my day had ended and I was requested at the athletes area for some Interviews, as I was showing up at the contest I see Alexes accident. For me it was the gnarliest moment of my life, coming in accomplishes adrenaline high surviving the big waves to seeing my brother right in front of my eyes fighting for his life.. what a crazy moment!”

In dem kommenden halben Jahr wird Nic von Rupps neue Videoserie zweimal pro Monat erscheinen – natürlich auch auf!
