This year has seen what are probably the biggest swells ever seen at Teahupoo, Tahiti, Shipstern Bluff. Tasmania and Cloudbreak, Tahiti, all combining for the biggest Southern Hemisphere action in the history of the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards. A lot of epic rides and a lot of shocking wipeouts have already gone down in this even which runs through March 19, 2012. What will the North Pacific and North Atlantic add to the mix? Sit down, and fasten your seatbelts....this is going to be an epic year no matter what!
