At 27 years old Ryan Hipwood is one of the most well-respected and recognizable big wave chargers in the world. As an accomplished free-surfer, Hippo found his niche in the surfing world by discovering the art of Big Wave surfing. In 2009, Ryan was runner-up in the prestigious Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards for surfing a monster wave at Shipsterns, Tasmania that nearly took his life. And in 2012 he was nominated for Billabong XXL Ride of the Year for his massive backhand barrel at Cloud Break, Fiji.

Hippo is always pushing the limits and is constantly searching the globe on an endless quest to find the biggest, most perfect waves. It is this passion for chasing monster slabs and fearless nature that has made Ryan one of the most photographed and respected surfers in the world.
