Makua Rothman paddles into a BOMB Tuesday afternoon at what was marked as "Opening Day" in Hawaii for big wave surfing. Makua won the Billabong XXL Award from a wave he caught a JAWS in 2002.

Makua Rothman party wavin' it with Shane Dorian and Mark Healey, from the Surfline article.
Here is another shot of Makua going on a rare left with Nathan Fletcher and an unidentified surfer. I guess when the wave is this big there is room to share. Check out more photos from that day on the surfermag.com jaws feature.
