Professional surfer Shane Dorian, a native of Kailua-Kona, has been nominated for four different awards in the Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards to be held May 3 in Anaheim, CA.

The 30-year-old Dorian was nominated for his ride on Oct. 9 on the northern end of Maui. The surf spot is known as “Jaws” for the large waves it generates. In a YouTube video posted on the awards show’s website, Dorian can be seen coming down through the wave before disappearing behind a large amount of whitewash that flies at him. He stayed on the board and emerged a few seconds later.
