It’s a fact: we’ve hit the doldrums, that time of year when the big wave reserves are running low. The wildest Nazaré moments are starting to get a little fuzzy. The train-tunnel-sized Jaws tubes are fading. But, right on time, just like they have for the last 20 years, the Red Bull Big Wave Awards are upon us and we're back in heavy water mode.
Here at Red Bull Surfing, we’re extra stoked to be teaming up with the WSL to be the presenting partner for the 2020 and 2021 Big Wave Awards. To kick off the Big Wave Awards season, over the next five weeks we’ll bring you the biggest, heaviest moments from the 2019/20 winter season – perhaps even some Guinness world records?
There'll be plenty of big-wave surprises over the next month, but this week we’re bringing you the best one of all: 100 percent fan voting for the Wipeout Award category.
On Monday, the WSL kicked off Wipeout Week, meaning the judging ballots have been turned over to you to vote on one of five of the winter’s craziest wipeouts. Click here to study up and be heard.
