MAVERICKS DOESN’T GO

Maverick’s went huge and the Titan’s didn’t run. Why the heck not?!!

JAWS GOES!

Congrats to Billy Kemper for his 2nd win at Jaws, making him the ONLY male surfer to ever win at Jaws!

THE FIRST EVER WOMEN’S BIG WAVE WORLD TOUR EVENT

3 of the 12 competitors ended up in the hospital before the final. How do you constitute a “successful” event? Not sure, but Paige Alms definitely succeeded out there.
