Almost exactly 2 years after nearly dying at big wave spot Nazare in Portugal, Maya Gabeira has gotten her redemption. The female big wave surfer has been working towards this moment endlessly and has finally found her way back into the lineup at Nazare. And even better, it's now a 2016 XXL Big Wave Awards Ride Of The Year entry.

We're not sure why the Federation of Costa Rican surfers were the ones who posted this video of the Gironde River Tidal Bore in France—but that's neither here nor there. It was estimated that they had 77 people riding the waves at the same time on all sorts of equipment: SUPs, kayaks, softboards, shortboards, and longboards. The drone footage really gives us an idea of what it's like to surf one of these river tidal bores, which looks awesome.

Photographer Ryan Deboodt gives us a stunning tour near the entrance and the first and second skylights of the world's largest cave, Hang Son Doong. Using a drone and a regular ol' camera, Deboodt gives a perspective of the Vietnam cave few have ever seen.

Any skate clip that gets you excited to go skate has accomplished its job. Which is exactly what Sean Slobodan's Local does here. Based in Utah, Slobodan based the short film on Weston Colton's photography. It's well-worth a watch and presents one of those unique perspectives on skating.
