2015 Big Wave Awards Nominees Announced

Last week, the World Surf League released the nominees for the 2015 Big Wave Awards. Categories include Ride of the Year, Paddle, Tube, and XXL Biggest Wave. Each category comes with a prize for both the surfer and the photographer/videographer who captured the winning performance.

“It was another spectacular year of big wave surfing, all around the globe,” said Bill Sharp, Big Wave Award Event Director and Founder. “This year there is a complete assortment of countries where amazing waves were ridden. It might even be the most internationally represented season ever in the 15 years since I started the Big Wave Awards.”
