Six categories, and a whole lot of water. That’s what the Billabong XXL Awards are based on. This year, there’s the Ride Of The Year award, the Pacifico Paddle award (so totally relevant in 2013!), the Pacifico Tube award, Biggest Wave award, Wipeout award and Girls Performance award. There’s some absolute gems across the categories, and one in particular that will be in contention for the first four awards: Shane Dorian’s Jaws bomb. You’ve seen it plenty of times, but Stab finds it hard to imagine a world where that wave doesn’t win at least one award.
Which wave most blows your hair back? Watch the nominees for Ride Of The Year, Paddle and Tube here, and go visit the XXL awards site for more.
