World of X Games debuts Episode 2 of “Big Wave Hellmen” – a three-episode series with five surfers seeking the biggest waves in the world — tonight at 5PM PT on ESPN, ESPN2, or ABC (click here for full television schedule).
The three one-hour programs document the journey and competition of big wave surfers: Mark Healey (HAW), Shane Dorian (HAW), Greg Long (USA), Grant “Twiggy” Baker (ZAF) and Ryan Hipwood (AUS) in their quest and the title of “Big Wave Hellman of the Year.”
In the video below, Brandon Graham sits down with the Big Wave Hellmen surfers to discuss “Risk vs. Fear.”
Each surfer’s efforts will be judged by big wave legends Greg Noll and Mike Parsons, and accomplished surf journalist Chris Dixon, with scores determined by the height of each wave multiplied by degree of difficulty combined with execution.
Produced by Taublieb Films in conjunction with ESPN, “Big Wave Hellmen” was shot on location throughout Hawaii, California, Mexico, France, South Africa, Tahiti, Australia and in other international waters.
