Meanwhile at Jaws
Paige Alms and Billy Kemper have won the Jaws Big Wave Championships in 9 to 15 metre waves at the famed Pe’ahi surf break on the North shore of Maui, Hawaii.
Both are locals and regularly surf the wave that offers up some of the biggest tube rides in the world.
Three times winner Alms said: ‘It’s the ultimate feeling being on a giant wave, it’s when I feel the most alive and so it’s the double-edged sword. You’re putting your body and life on the line to ride these waves but when you successfully ride one, nothing beats it.’
