He's American, he's 16 years old and he's not afraid of big waves.

Meet Tyler Larronde, the newest star of the XXL riding circuit. This time, the French wonder hit Jaws for an incredible tow-in surfing session with his father, Michel Larronde, on the jet ski.

The junior Tyler boy has what it takes to conquer the world in a very near future. Salt water runs through his veins and he doesn't let a giant wall of H2O reach the beach without surfing it.

This time, in the beginning of November, the photographer Jimmie Hepp caught Tyler Larronde air dropping a big wave at Jaws, Hawaii.

Of course, the amazing ride and photo have already been submitted to the 2011 Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards.

Nazaré probably is the most powerful beach break. The Portuguese big wave surfing spot is as exciting as it will test your limits - as a surfer and as a human being.
