When Perth native, Brad Norris, isn’t tending to the many tasks of running his own plumbing business, you can find him hunting down some of the heaviest surf in the world. Filmer Tom Jennings captured Norris on October 2, 2013 at The Right in Western Australia. The mutant shape and shocking density of the wave easily makes Norris’ brave ride worthy of an entry into the 2014 Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards.
With six different awards categories, the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards hosts some of the gnarliest surfers in the world each year at The Grove in Anaheim, California. A panel of judges take on the challenge of narrowing down the best entries of the year to be recognized with prize money at the banquet. Norris’ ride at The Right will be included as a submission into the “Ride of the Year” category.
