VIDEO: Shane Dorian's Wild Ride at Mavericks

Surfer nominated by Billabong for ride of the year taken last week in Half Moon Bay.

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.
