First, we have Shane Dorian. This is almost offensive. The size of that wave. The sideways airdrop. The scoop, the entrance and finally the triumphant exit. There are simply no superlatives that would do this wave justice.

Then, Gabriel Villaran! His effort is tremendous on a real bastard of a wave. Gabriel slithers in without much drama on the drop, poetically scoops and then stands tall in a barrel the size of Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana. While he stands, the wave turns into something of a latte and Gabe must exit through the gift shop before hell crashes down on him. Success!

And now, to bring us home, Ricardo Dos Santos shows us what happens when you don’t quite get under that thick Mexican lip. Would a jeronimo be appropriate here?
