THE World Surf League (WSL) Big Wave Tour (BWT), featuring Ulladulla’s Russell Bierke, has issued a green alert for the Jaws Challenge at Pe'ahi, Hawaii to run on Monday, November 26.
The first call will be made at 7:30 a.m local time (HST) on Monday.
"We are all systems go for the Jaws Challenge at Pe'ahi to run on Monday, November 26," said WSL BWT commissioner Mike Parsons.
"We have officially issued a green alert and the competitors are all gearing up for the second Big Wave stop of the season.
“The swell is looking in the 35-to-45-foot face range and we are excited for the world's best big wave surfers to put on a show for the world."
Pe'ahi, known as ‘Jaws’, breaks off the northern coastline of Maui with the ability to produce waves in excess of 60 feet.
The event premiered on the BWT in 2015 and has witnessed exceptional performances since its addition to the Big Wave Tour.
Pe’ahi is also the venue that hosted the first WSL Women’s Big Wave Tour event and crowned the first Women’s Big Wave Tour Champion.
All eyes will be on this venue this year to see the top-ranked BWT surfers, including Bierke who reached the final in his BWT debut event in Nazaré recently, take on the monstrous conditions.
