Vote for the winter’s heaviest wipeouts at the Red Bull Big Wave Awards
The Red Bull Big Wave Awards are here and this year it’s up to fans to vote for some of 2020’s biggest moments. First up, it's time to pick the wipeouts of the year.
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.
Also this week, the WSL announced the finalists in the Big Wave Awards' five other categories:
- Women’s Best Overall Performance
- Men’s Best Overall Performance

Every Monday over the next five weeks, either check here with us, or on the Red Bull Big Wave Awards page, to see the winners of each category.
Here are a few other key categories to watch out for:
- The Men’s Ride of the Year. This one’s most certainly coming down to either Jaws or Nazaré, and the competition is fierce. Remember Billy Kemper’s mind-bending tube acrobatics at Jaws on January 23? How about Kai Lenny, Lucas Chumbo and Seb Steudtner taking performance levels to new heights at Nazaré?
Time to bookmark the Big Wave Awards page, because we’re in for an epic next five weeks.
