Few surfers have put their mark on big wave riding like Shane Dorian.
Dorian competed on the World Championship Tour for over a decade, spending most of his time around top-ten status with the latter part of 2000 in World Title contention. Shane has also appeared in countless iconic surf films spanning his twenty-five year career.
After leaving the competitive tour in 2004, Shane discovered his true passion for big wave surfing and never looked back. Dedicating his time, focusing training, and following the biggest swells around the world is paying off. He won the 2005 Billabong XXL Surfline ‘Overall Best Performance’ award and added a ‘Monster Tube’ award in 2006.
Shane has cemented his spot as one of the most talented and innovative heavy water surfers in history and most recently recognized as SIMA’s 2012 waterman of the year award.
