“What the surfers are saying about it…
“It was an honor just to be here today and paddle out with these other guys. I flew 36 hours to be here, and this has been a dream come true.” – Chris Bertish, 09/10 Champion
“The entire book of big wave surfing was re-written today.” – Greg Long
“These were definitely the biggest waves I have ever paddled into.” – Shane Desmond
“No excuses on a day like today, it was perfect. Whatever you wanted, you could take.” – Anthony Tashnick
“It was undoubtedly the largest surf any paddle-in contest has ever seen.” – Dave Wassel
“There is such a brotherhood in the lineup. These people are my family.” – Carlos Burle
“Today took big-wave surfing to another notch.” – Gary Linden, Head Judge”
Of course the event was not without controversy. Perhaps MSV will address that at some point?
Regardless, It was an epic day.
