Yet another classic display of big wave riding from Jaws on Friday, this time a paddle session at Jaws with North Shore charger Aaron Gold nailing the wave of the day (on his birthday, too). Since just after New Year's there has been something spectacular going down about every other day somewhere - and now we have the Maverick's Invitational kicking off. Could this be the best year of big wave surfing ever? Video by Tracy Leboe
