The World Surfing League, after much deliberation have now announced the nominations for the 2014/2015 Big Wave Awards for the categories of Ride Of the Year, XXL Biggest Wave, Paddle Nominees and the Tube Nominees. Massive waves were ridden all over the globe and the team were swamped with possible entries but they have finally made their decision and have announced five surfers in each category.
To accompany the announcement the WSL have also released a compilation video of the nominees in action and we have embedded it for you to see at the bottom of this article. One entry that is certainly causing a buzz is the inclusion of Brad Domke to the Billabong Ride of the Year nomination for his gutsy ride at Puerto Escondido on his Skimboard!
Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker has two nominations in the Paddle category as does Shane Dorian in the Ride of The Year section. We are still waiting on a further 3 categories to be announced, the Women’s Best Performance, the Surfline Overall Performance and the favourite with many – the best/biggest Wipeout!
You can see the Ride of The Year nominations in the official video below and can read the full list from the WSL here. Let us know who you think deserves the win and do you think the WSL have got the nominations about right?
