Inicialmente conhecidos como XXL Awards, os Red Bull Big Wave Awards nomeiam os maiores destaques no mundo das ondas grandes e como não podia deixar de ser há um surfista português na disputa.

Nicolau Von Rupp tem dado que falar no big surf há vários anos e mais uma vez foi reconhecido como um dos melhores da modalidade, na categoria de Best Overall Performance (melhor performance). O surfista da Praia Grande disputa a vitória com surfistas como Grant Baker, Russell Bierke, Lucas Chianca, Nathan Florence, Billy Kemper, Kai Lenny, Tom Lowe, Eli Olson e Ian Walsh mas é um dos claros favoritos.
