30 Min. Video - Volcom's Annihilator Series Episode 9: Sion Milosky. RIP
In the late afternoon hours Wednesday, tragedy struck as infamous Northern California big-wave spot Maverick's took the life of 35-year-old Hawaiian surfer Sion Milosky.
Originally from Kalaheo, Kauai, Milosky was an underground charger for most of his career who nevertheless commanded considerable respect at big-wave breaks around the world.
It's been speculated that he paddled into one of the biggest waves ever, an outer-reef bomb in Hawaii that's been sized at "30-foot Hawaiian," which means it was at least 60 feet by normal standards. Earlier this year he caught one of the waves of the winter at Pipeline, and before that he signed a healthy endorsement deal with Volcom.
