Watch Sebastian Steudtner run, drive a car, do cross-fit and surf giant Nazaré all set to a poem about waves

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 April, 2017 - German big wave surfer Sebastian Steudtner has just launched a big-budget clip focused on Nazaré and his amazing training regime in preparation for the 100-foot-day (when it comes.)

As one of the few surfers sponsored by a car company, the clip breaks from the norm of sunny day air-reverses in exchange for a dark, moody and dramatic hyper-cut-away look at the German surfer.

“Over the course of a year, photographer and filmmaker Alex Laurel accompanied Steudtner from the training units in Hamburg, Germany to the roaring waters of Nazaré, Portugal,” said Mercedes Benz. “The result pays tribute to the powerful force of the ocean’s waves, one that exerts a pull that can hardly be avoided, yet one that can never be conquered either.”

A few years ago Mercedes backed a new board design with Garrett McNamara.
