RIDE OF THE YEAR AWARD NOMINEES

The Ride of the Year is the top-line category of the event and is awarded to the male and female surfers who demonstrate the most advanced and committed level of big wave surfing during a successful ride, as judged by available video-footage. While raw size is taken into consideration, it is ultimately the level of performance that is rewarded.
