After two days of intense action, Red Bull Cape Fear has come to a close for 2016, with 18-year-old South Coast surfer Russell Bierke the last man standing.
The event ran like no other in surfing history. A week of wild weather in Sydney Australia saw Cape Solander maxed out on day one, with many competitors claiming it was far-and-away the biggest the infamous break has ever been surfed.
The surfers were aware of the risks that came with paddling out, yet deemed it worth the reward. A unanimous surfer vote saw the contest kick-off in barely surfable 12-foot [3.66m] barrels and from the first horn all 16 invitees were ready to charge, take risks, pull in and lay it all on the line.
Take a look back at the utter carnage from one of the gnarliest surf contests in the history of the sport: Red Bull Cape Fear 2016
