Just moments after the WSL Big Wave Awards and the level stepped up again with a session that is quickly going to shake the conventions of big wave surfing. Captured below is one of the craziest waves ever caught, ridden and then absolutely murdered on by a surfer. How this guys survived I simply cant imagine.
The awards for the most mental surfers on the planet approaches and these are the nominees for the Ride of the Year. While Brad Domke is pretty spectacular on his finless wonder, I think it is a 2 horse race between Shane Dorian, that drop at Puerto is crazy, and Dean Morrison, as if we are remembering it is the “Big Wave” awards and his wave at the Right is absolutely insane. I will be posting the awards nominees during the day and week.
One of the biggest names in Bodyboarding attacks the lineup at Puerto Escondido! Huge, gnarly beachbreak surfed without fear.
A few weeks in Puerto Escondido. Directed, edited and filmed by Richard Lornie from Chout Films. Additional footage by Noam Eshel and Reid Southall. Huge thanks to Clive and Adriana from Aqua Luna hotel.
