Carlos Burle @ Mavericks 2010
This bomb was just one of many that Carlos charged on February 13th, 2010. It was a historic day, as it produced the biggest waves ever ridden in a big wave contest. Though he didn’t win the contest, he made the final, and charged as hard, if not harder, than anybody, accumulating over a minute’s worth of time underwater over the course of the contest. There’s a reason Carlos was crowned the first ever Big Wave World Champion! He’s a very intelligent surfer, and he’s never afraid to go.
