Malibu, Hurricane Marie 2014 X Jazan Kozma
USA

Honorable Mention

"Malibu, Hurricane Marie 2014 X"
The epic swell brought by Hurricane Marie created a playground for some surfers, but for others…well you could see it in their eyes as they straggled back from the water. The inner dialog going on in their head as they clutched the pieces of what was left of their surfboard. Many felt like they had just come a little too close to not making it back at all. To say the least, most surfers felt a little humbled that day. Sure the Laird Hamilton’s of this world were shooting the pier on 14 foot faces, but for mere mortals, the average Joe, it was more a question of pure survival. This series is dedicated to that average guy who had the courage to go out that day, or the insanity, depending on your point of view.
