Garrett McNamara Wins Biggest Wave and Wipeout of the Year
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 7 May, 2012 : - - Body Glove International would like to congratulate team rider Garrett McNamara for winning the Biggest Wave Award, Wipeout of the Year and for setting a new world record at the Billabong XXL Awards, last Friday, May 4th, 2012. With his enormous wave at North Canyon in Portugal, Garrett took away the Biggest Wave Award and set a new world record for surfing. A panel of big wave surfing and photography experts, who analyzed and measured the photos and videos of Garrett’s ride, determined the height of the wave.
The measurements determined by the Billabong XXL judging panel were also recognized by Guinness World Records as the official “largest wave ever ridden.” In addition, Garrett also won the Verizon Wipeout of the Year Award for his epic free-fall at Jaws in Maui, Hawaii earlier this year in January.
The Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards were held at the Grove in Anaheim, CA and were attended by 2,200 surf world VIP’s. For a list of all the results and photos of the event visit here.
