The Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards are no joke. Every year contenders must submit evidence of their burly rides to claim the $50,000 reward.
To compliment this photo essay showcasing tips from 4 of the 2009 winners, I commissioned hand-done lettering created with dry pigment & brush.
My own little hands created matching watercolor continents to map where each winner is based. 
Watch some of the ridonculous 2014 nominees here!
