Surfer is swallowed by enormous waves and has to be rescued after falling off his board 

This is the nail-biting moment a surfer falls off his board while riding an enormous wave and has to be rescued.

Footage shows Thiago Jacaré, 35, from Brazil, riding a huge wave in Praia do Norte beach, Nazaré, Portugal, before suddenly losing his balance and falling into the ocean. 

Mr Jacaré, who is an experience big wave surfer, is immediately swallowed by a mass of churning white waves and disappears out of sight for several seconds.

The surfer rises to the surface and catches his breath just in time before another gigantic wave pummels his body and he is dragged under. 

His teammate, David Langer, can be seen on his jet ski trying to reach Mr Jacaré but he is unable to as it is too dangerous. 

Five more enormous waves cascade down upon Mr Jacaré and send him plunging below the surface.

Eventually surfer Sebastian Steudtner, from Germany, manages to rescue his teammate and they speeds off towards the beach as a wave quickly follows at their backs.

Mr Jacaré is seen being helped onto the beach and carried to a stretcher to be taken to hospital.

And despite being pummeled by numerous waves, Mr Jacaré was left unharmed except major exhaustion.

Mr Jacaré said: ‘This was by far the worst wipe out of my life, I barely got the chance to breathe between waves.

‘When I got to the sand, I was completely exhausted, to the point I couldn’t even move. 

‘I won’t ever forget this day!’   

Praia do Norte beach has been famous for its huge waves since 2011 when Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara set a world record for the largest wave ever surfed.
