Why Size Doesn’t Matter.

People die in all conditions, not just big waves.

Although big wave surfers use specialized equipment unseen in regular line-ups, those are just backup tools. All big wave surfers point back to decades of training, experience, and hard-earned ocean knowledge as the foundation of their abilities.

The majority of this foundational knowledge is relevant for every surfer to know.

That’s why we ask the top big wave surfers in the world to pass down their ocean survival know-how to improve line-up safety globally.

Accidents happen in all waves, so at the end of the day, size really doesn’t matter.
