The World Record holder for largest paddle-in wave, Shawn Dollar, is this week’s guest on Off the Lip Radio Show, featuring legendary surfers and skateboarders in their Santa Cruz, California studio. You can watch the interview LIVE from inside the studio on January 21st, 2014 from 7-8 PM PST right here on TheSurfChannel.com.
Shawn Dollar won both the Pacifico Paddle and XXL Biggest Wave division of the 2013 Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards with his record 61-ft wave at Cortes Bank. Dollar caught and surfed the wave without the assistance of jet skis on December 21, 2012 at Cortes Bank, an offshore reef in international waters 100 miles west of San Diego, California. The height of this giant surpassed all those caught within the last year. The wave’s face height measured 61 feet from trough to crest surpassing previous record holder Shane Dorian’s 57-foot ride at Jaws, Maui, Hawaii in 2011.
