This is one of the most exiting time of the year for big wave riders and surf photographer around the world. Thats because the Billabong XXL Global big waves award Just anouced the nominees for this year award.
It was a huge year for big wave surfing , some of the biggest waves ever seen on fiji , portugal, ireland and in tahiti ,
not maintioning the biggest paddle in sesion ever at peahi.
I was fortuned enough to be present in some of those epic days, and the result of that was to have four of my pictures and one video clip as nominees for this year awards.
