Paige Alms’ epic barrel at Jaws last week has been hailed as potentially the biggest ever ridden by a woman at the hallowed Maui break. It has also earned the Hawaiian local a nomination in the Billabong Ride of the Year category of the 2015 XXL Big Wave Awards.
And just to be clear, this isn’t just awesome ‘for a girl’ – this is massive by any big-wave surfer’s standards. Paige is one of the best big-wave chargers in the world, and is Maui’s big-wave female ambassador.
A documentary about Paige by Devyn Bisson was successfully funded only a couple of weeks ago on kickstarter.
