A huge congratulations to Justine Dupont for taking home the top honors in not one but THREE categories at the inaugural New Big Wave Challenge awards held in Nazaré, Portugal.
🏆 Surfer of the Year (Women)
🏆 Ride of the Year (Women) – Cortes Bank
🏆 Biggest Wave (Women) – Cortes Bank
The New Big Wave Challenge is a fresh take on the tradition of providing a “town square” for the best athletes and content creators to gather together and share what they do with the world. All year long the surfers surf and the shooters shoot and at the end of the season the crew gets together and celebrates the best waves and the best performances as captured on video and still photos.
This year’s event window will include every wave ridden at every big wave break around the world from August 2022 through July 2023. Justine’s wave at Cortes Bank, a rogue seamount 100 miles off the California coast, was estimated at 75 feet on the face and will be in contention for a Guinness World Record. We’re so proud of what you’ve achieved and we can’t wait to write the next chapter together!
