gerglong If you're only as good as the company you keep, I'd say I won the lottery today spending time with this amazing crew. @hilareeoneill @jeremyjones @mattyhuntertime Summiting right on time with the sunrise this morning....Quick ride down followed by a little climbing, single track and evening surf rounded out our perfect California dream day.

gerglong It's not often you wake up and already know that the day ahead is going to be one you will remember for a very long time.

gerglong Overwhelmed and grateful for the many messages of support and congratulations the last few weeks. This last year was one wild ride and undoubtedly the best of my life. There are far too many people to thank for playing an integral part of it (you all know who you are) so I won’t even begin to start. I will just say that being this year’s Big Wave World Champ is a tremendous accomplishment and feels amazing, but far greater than any award or accolade are the experiences had, and memories made with friends and family along the way. Title or not, everyday I wake up feeling like a champ because of all the incredible people I’m so fortunate to share this life with. @billabong @peligrosotequila @christensonsurfboards @clifbarcompany @vonzipper @futuresfins @sustainsurf 1mon

gerglong Trying to articulate what receiving this year’s Big Wave World Tour trophy at the WSL awards in Australia actually meant was no easy task because to me it represented so much more than the success I found at a few of the events this season. The elation felt had little to do with winning (which I am very proud of no doubt) but rather because it was the first time our discipline of the sport has been recognized right alongside the rest of surfing’s elite athletes and tours; It was the realization of the dream of one of my heroes, @g.linden who conceptualized the idea of the BWWT almost two decades ago and has since worked tirelessly with his heart and soul to making it a reality; and it was the greatest acknowledgement of the years of dedication so many big wave surfers put forth, traveling around the globe to compete, not for prize money or fame, but simply for the love and hope of building a better future for our sport. My heartfelt thanks to @wsl for all their support of the tour, and the countless surfers and previous world champs ( @carlosburle @jamie.sterling @granttwigbaker @peter_mel @makuarothman ) for paving the way and making it the success that it is today. This was a milestone year for big wave surfing on so many fronts but I have no doubt that the biggest and best is still yet to come! 2mon

gerglong The Eddie take #2 is poised to go off tomorrow morning 8am HST. I'm going out on a limb and saying that Waimea is going to be shining in all its glory from sunrise to sunset tomorrow. Tune in to the @wsl webcast for another monumental day of big wave surfing. @billabong @peligrosotequila @clifbarcompany @vonzipper @christensonsurfboards @futuresfins 2mon

gerglong When you realize you both love sitting in the dirt, grooming your hair the same way, and eating tortilla chips, you Instantly become best friends. #chingadera #spiritanimal #separatedatbirth 2mon

gerglong When you are surrounded by the brightest of friends, apparently you can just put a camera on a log, set the timer, scramble on the rocks and photos like this will happen. @maramilam @kyle_tman @franksolomon 2mon
