Surfer Garrett MacNamara rides 'weather bomb' wave

Surfers have descended on Praia do Norte in Nazaré to try and catch massive waves generated by an Atlantic storm that hit the UK.

Surfer Garrett MacNamara tried to repeat his performance of 2011 when he surfed the world's biggest wave at 30 metres high.

Unfortunately, the 'weather bomb' waves of Nazaré, Portugal only reached 20 metres but he still managed to impress.
