Garrett McNamara says no to Billabong XXL Awards

On Jan. 28, 2013, Garrett McNamara caught a wave off the coast of Nazare, Portugal, that became an instant media sensation. It was dubbed the "100-foot wave" by news outlets around the world, including ABC, CBS, Fox and CNN. This Wednesday, McNamara will appear on a "60 Minutes Sports" installment about the wave. But as of today, McNamara has withdrawn his entries from the Billabong XXL Awards, surfing's prestigious big-wave awards show.

"We decided to pull my waves from Nazare out of Billabong XXL because I do not ride for Billabong and I did not go out that day and surf for a world record or to win any XXL prize money," said McNamara via email. "I was out there because I live for big waves, it's what I love to do!! It is not necessary to have a Billabong panel measure it. There have already been quite a few educated professionals who have measured it anywhere between 60-110 feet!"

Good swell forecast for Quiksilver, Roxy Pros...

Action-packed weekend likely for Quiksilver & Roxy Pros

Surf News, 27 February, 2013 The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s presented by Land Rover are likely to commence this weekend with a promising swell set to arrive on cue for the opening 2013 events of the ASP Men’s and Women’s World Championship Tours. Contest Director Jake Paterson (Aus) is anticipating an action packed weekend as the world’s best surfers commence their 2013 campaigns in the high performance waves on the southern end of Australia’s Gold Coast. “We have a great week of swell coming. It’s just a bit unfortunate at the moment that we have a big hole out the back of Snapper Rocks but fortunately for us, we have a great bank down at Rainbow Bay, so it looks like we are going to get away pretty early,” said Paterson.
