Another big wave with a portuguese accent


Marti Paradisis has conquered the Surfing Life Oakley Big Wave Awards 2013, held in Australia.

The “Biggest Wave” of the year was awarded to Marti Paradisis, who scored a huge slab in Pedra Branca, Tasmania.

Pedra Branca (…) means “White Rock” in Portuguese. According to historian Kenneth McIntyre, Pedra Branca is one of only two Australian places with a name of Portuguese origin, the other being the Houtman Abrolhos islands in Western Australia.
