Here’s one for the bored; the stoned, the fans of Moving Art and pretty sounds cut to a frantic, moody ocean.

Big Nazaré isn't for surfing. The short film below, Empties, is big Nazaré the way it should be presented - left alone to marvel at from a distance. Unridden and free.

Filmmaker, Nuno Dias, has been working on this short as a side project for the past two winters while documenting the big wave scene in Nazarè. “I’ve selected the very best empty big wave shots I’ve had a chance to capture,” Dias told Stab; “Then I added an original soundtrack specifically produced for this film, the end result is this nine-minute short.”
