Billabong XXL Big Waves awards







Its the annual Billabong XXL big wave awards this Friday being held in California. This award is recognised as the one to aspire to for Big wave chargers and its eagerly awaited every year. There are numerous categories, including monster tube, monster paddle, ride of the year, but the category for me is the Biggest Wave ridden. There are 5 nominees being towed into waves at Cortes Bank, Ghost Trees and Belharra but I've picked out 2 which in my humble opinion are likely winners...in fact sticking my neck out and being bias towards Europe, I'd say the ride by Vincent Lartizen at Belharra should take it...but what do I know, I could be completely wrong. Check the pics and see what you think (Grant Baker, Cortes left pic/Belharra right pic). Either way these are epic waves. The XXL awards are being broadcast live on the web (02.00 GMT Sat12th)

While Duncan and Al didn't make the final five for ride of the year, they were the only two surfers singled out by Occy at the beginning on the Awards Dinner for bringing Ireland to big wave community.
