Big Wave Paddle in Surfing
Big wave surfing is the ultimate test for all surfers, challenging yourself against the might of the raw ocean under the power of only your arms.
Long had been tradition for surfers to paddle into big waves under their own power before the advent of the jet ski which has helped the sport conquer new territory. Waves that were previously conceived unsurfable, wave sizes previously only imaginable. Now, where possible, the focus has gone back to paddle and testing the courage of even the most hardened waterman to throw themselves over the ledge of big waves. Big wave surfing will be one discipline of the Ultimate Waterman event not to be missed.
