Cape Town, South Africa
Champion: 2010
South African big wave surfer won the title in 2010 with unbelievably large surf. Some say the biggest they’ve ever seen it. His skills as a true waterman gave Chris the edge and footing to take the title in 2010. His win in the heaviest waves ever recorded in the history of the sport has given Chris a special spot in the history of Mavericks. He continues to be a force in the line up around the world, and has turned to public speaking and is inspiring others to connect to the ocean daily.
