Shane Dorian took the Billabong XXL Ride of the Year Award, and damn right, too.
Shawn Dollar won a new World Record for the largest wave ever paddled into with his 61ft mountain ridden at Cortes Bank on December 21st 2012.
Other Award winners were Greg Long (Men’s Performance), Keala Kennelly (Women’s Performance) and Brett Burcher (Wipeout of the Year).
What’s amazing is how none of the waves ridden by the above crew happened in Fiji during what many say are some of the best big waves ever seen or ridden.
