Brazil's Legendary Slab Wave Is Named 'Avalanche'

By

A legendary surfing spot lies three miles off the shore of Vila Velha City, Brazil that has a name linked to skiing and snowboarding, but why?

The slab wave has been dubbed ‘Avalanche’ for its steepness and the frothy like nature of the water that almost looks like a snow. It’s a quick ride considering it’s a slab wave, but the barrel shots are worth the risk!
