    Tonight they will announce the Billabong XXL awards. These are awards given out in the following categories. There are a few categories but the one that is most noteworthy is the biggest documented wave. Here's a link the home page. There's video of some of the finalists.

    All I can say is that I have never put my foot on a surfboard, yet I am extremely jealous and wishing I lived closer to the ocean sometimes.



    Incredible.

    Wait, they're giving money to the ocean? They realize it's not sentient, right?
