SHANE DORIAN WINS 2 BIG WAVE AWARDS // RIDE OF THE YEAR & OVERALL PERFORMANCE


Reef Ambassador Shane Dorian, one of the most decorated and respected Big Wave surfers in the world, secured the Billabong Ride of the Year Award, as well as the Surfline Men’s Overall Performance of the Year Award at the 2016 Big Wave Awards. 

After winning the Men’s Overall Performance Award Dorian had this to say... “It is a huge honor as this is probably the hardest award to win and probably the most prestigious because it is not based on one wave or one session. Just to be nominated with these guys is incredible to me. I thought that all nominated had standout seasons. It was just an amazing season, a lot of people had a lot of opportunities, and I’m extremely grateful.”

Congrats Shane!
