Another edition of the “Big Wave Awards” is taking place, developed by WSL and Red Bull, now in 2020 with a new format of one winner per week and voting by the public, having the following surf categories:
- XXL Biggest Wave
- Ride of the Year
Nazaré stands out in the XXL Biggest Wave category, as expected, with 7 nominated waves out of a total of 8 waves. The winning wave in this “queen” category is likely to be from Nazaré, and possibly could correspond to a new world record for the height of the wave surfed.
It is already certain that the biggest wave of the female nominees will be a wave from Nazaré, since the 3 nominated waves are in Nazaré, and the winner will be Justine Dupont or Maya Gabeira.
Also check the video of a spectacular wave by Kai Lenny, filmed during the WSL Nazare Challenge, with good chances of winning in the XXL category:
Meanwhile, the winner of the Wipeout category has been revealed, this time Keala Kennelly won.
The remaining winners will be announced in the coming weeks.
