"Will Skudin has been relentlessly pursuing XXL swells since he was 16 years old. And with a historic El Nino winter in place this year, Skudin finally got his chance to show the world exactly how legit he is when the waves reach quadruple overhead-plus. He got a few BWT alternate slots and a few XXL Awards entries, but he didn't receive an invite to the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Big-Wave Invitational.
Being the class-act he is, Skudin didn't complain. He just went left -- way left -- all the way over to Maui.. Then he just kept going left."
