Billabong Global Big-Wave Awards go to Garrett McNamara and Brian Conley, featured in Yoga for Surfers III: Unleashed!

When the Billabong XXL Big-Wave Awards were held on April 17, 2009 at the Grove in Anaheim, California, Garrett McNamara and Brian Conley, both featured in Yoga for Surfers III: Unleashed! were honored as two the top five surfers for “Best Ride of the Year”!

Conley showcased an amazing “inside the tube” perspective with his hand-held camera while McNamara pulled into a deep, deep, deep (did I say deep?) jaw-dropping macker at treacherous Teahupoo.

McNamara, who was also a top finalist for Best Tube Ride said, “It was the best ride of my life. I didn’t mean to do a layback, but that’s how I held my line,” the goofy-footer explained. Yeah, did you catch that? Surfing Teahupoo, backside, in one of the biggest waves ridden at that spot in all of 2008.

These guys are not just courageous, they are other-wordly. It’s no surprise, really, to find out that both Conley and G-Mac use yoga as one of their secret weapons to stay calm, cool, and laser-focused on the experience at hand.
