Brad Domke, Oliver Bridge, Thomas Traversa and Amaury Lavernhe are "Athletes of the Year 2014" by SurferToday
SurferToday.com has announced the best wave riders of the year 2014.
They have been inspiring our lives and pushing the limits of wave sports.
They are the most talented surfers, kiteboarders, windsurfers and bodyboarders of our oceans in 2014.
Their time is now.
The Billabong Pipe Masters had been called off for the day. Fortunately for hundreds of free surfers, there were some of the best waves of the year pumping out there at Third Reef.
Too heavy, too big, and too dangerous. The ASP World Tour decided to protect the fleet of pro surfers and declared a lay day at the third jewel of the Triple Crown of Surfing.
But the jewel produced perfect surf, splendid barrels and high-quality rides. If you're crowning a world champion in the sport of surfing, you just can't miss these conditions.
