Who rode the biggest wave of the year in surfing? There were some monumental entries, but these were deemed the biggest by the WSL Big Wave Awards committee. In my opinion the biggest paddle waves eclipse these nominees (Posting tomorrow), but if I had to pick a winner, it will be Ross Clark-Jones. Making it around that white water was pretty dam impressive, even though Nazare always gives the impression of being soft compared to other big wave spots. I cant deny, it is a bloody big wave.
