Dorian Nominated for the XXL Big Wave Awards.
The World Surf League has announced their XXL Big Wave Award nominees for the 2014/15 season. It was a year full of action at many of the most notorious big wave venues including Puerto Escondido, Mavericks and Jaws.
Shane Dorian was strategic in his assault on the big wave arena this year, and his efforts paid off big time as two of the five entries into the Billabong 'Ride of the Year' category were his. One being his crazy air drop to tube combo from a July XXL swell in Puerto Escondido. The other, a massive Jaws pit that came around mid winter. Of course, the final results won't be unveiled until Friday, May 1st at the Grove, but in the meantime you can check out his entries and all the others right here. Congrats Shane!
