“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 a load of fun. After 3 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” – Nic Von Rupp
