The Beachworks crew hit up the Billabong XXL Awards on Friday and were in fine form. I have to say it is pretty incredible to watch where surfing has come. Just a few years ago people were hyped on getting towed into 57′ waves, and now you have guys like Shane Dorian paddling into them. I heard Shane took a pretty solid beating on one of those. Thankfully he was wearing that new wetsuit with the air/bladder. That drop that Couto took was insane as well. If in just a few years the sport has progressed this much, I cannot wait to see what we will be in-store for a few years from now. Pretty classic that Tito Ortiz gave away the Verizon Wipeout award. Can’t wait for the next party at the Grove. always a good time.
