Makua Rothman, 2014-15 Big Wave World Champion
Monstrous drops, flat caps being worn during underwater swim training, commentary orgasms and a world title!
Congratulations to Makua Rothman, who was recently confirmed as winner of the Big Wave Tour for the 2014-2015 season. Sure, the tour itself was a distinctly dubious affair, but Makua's skill and commitment in the only two events that ultimately got the go-ahead can be in no doubt at all. Above is a video from sponsors Monster, featuring his extraordinary drop in Peru (1:09) and some cracking commentary reminiscent of Gary Neville's on-air orgasm. Below is another from RVCA, in which Makua neglects to remove his flat cap for underwater swim training -- perhaps because his contract forbids him to, perhaps because it has become a permanent extension of his personality. How long until they become customary attire in heats?
