While several big wave surfers rode Mavericks last Wednesday, Shane Dorian's ride stood out from the rest. Santa Cruz surf and sportswear company Billabong has nominated the Kailua-Kona, Hawaii resident for his Feb. 8 ride in their Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards.
According to Billabong, Dorian showed his advanced skills by paddling into the wave in a two-stroke takeoff. See Dorian in action at Mavericks by watching the video attached to the media box at right. Video by Elliot Leboe.
