Maya Gabeira: she loves huge waves

Nelscott Reef promoters are very proud to announce that a women’s exhibition has been added to the 2010 Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic.

Nelscott Reef announced a format change for 2010, migrating from tow in to paddle in only. Organizers had been interested in the past with including women, but there not enough female only tow teams.

Seven of the world’s best women have been invited to compete in this years’ Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic.
