Last saturday the Big Wave World Tour crowned Jamie Sterling from Oahu, Hawaii its second World Champion, receiving $10,000 for his performance.

He received a check for $1000 and a complete free dive spearfishing set from Cressi Sub.

Jamie Sterling Wins Big-Wave World Tour


9'8" Rusty Preisendorfer shaped quads were Sterling's go to boards this season. "While I was injured [last season], I spent a whole lot of time watching the world's best surfers surf the world's biggest waves," Sterling explains. "And I think taking notes last year helped. I wanted to charge, but I also wanted to charge with a strategy."

HOW DID YOU FIRST RECEIVE THE NEWS THAT YOU BECAME THE SECOND-EVER BIG WAVE WORLD CHAMPION?
I had been obviously tracking my rating on the tour all year and I was waiting for Maverick's and Todos to happen. That was going to change things as far as the ratings go. Either it'd increase my lead even more or have my lead decrease depending on who won. But these events didn't get to happen this year, due to lack of big swells. So the closing periods ended on the 28th of February and it was like...I won. [Laughs]. So I just kind of waited for the February 28th date. I was hoping that there would be a swell and I could win it with Todos or Maverick's happening. But hey, a win's a win. I'll take it.

Jamie Sterling Ventures Through the Midwest via Sea Plane

I just finished a week long adventure in the Midwest. I was flying all over the Great Lakes doing recon for a Red project called "New Wave". We utilized John Shoffner's Gunmen Albatross Red Bull branded Sea plane. I never knew the Great Lakes had waves. After flying  25.2hrs, and 3528 nautical miles I've come to the conclusion that the mid west has some nice setups for surfing. I've always been curious about the Great Lakes of North America. Some of the setups out on the vast Lakes looked like Tahitian reef passes. No the waves were not tubing like Teahupo'o but the water was crystal clear and the waves were rolling in with uniformity. We didn't expect to get waves on this trip. This first expedition purpose was to only look around and plot GPS coordinates. We did plenty of searching and scored a little out of season swell that I stand up paddled. The locals greeted us with open arms and welcomed us back anytime. The private flights on the Red Bull Albatross were mind blowing. Talk about a high end adventure. VIP….Thank you RED BULL!

I'll be coming back to the Great Lakes in the middle of winter on the next big Northeastern storm. Yes parts of the lake will be frozen and I'll be bundled up in snow gear. Why, because I live for the adventure and the water is fresh.

P.S. Water landing's rule! Its so smooth to land on a silky lake…John Shoffner thanks for flying the plane and making it a smooth flight!

Aloha,

Jamie Sterling
