Since the contest opened on the 15th of July in 2020, there have been 40 videos submitted for consideration along with 22,020 votes from 18,733 registered users! The entries (and the votes) came from all over the world – Australia, Chile, Tahiti, Hawaii, California, Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Mexico – making for a true international affair. There were world champions, unknowns, underground rippers and household names in the mix. And these waves further featured a massive array of styles and moves – and not to mention some unbelievable barrels. And if you’re keeping tabs, there were only 2 dropknee waves out of all the submitted videos.
