    23-24 March 2023: giant waves
    Very strong swell with favorable wave direction (it has been rarer this season), and with very little wind, it should finally generate giant* waves (see caption below).
    The size of the waves should exceed 12 meters at least on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.

    Maybe it was the last opportunity to hold the surf event/competition "Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge" (see below) this season, which is starting to have little chance of being realized in this season of big waves.
