Sebastian Steudtner hat eine besondere Vorliebe für die Wellen in Nazaré und ist einer der wenigen Surfer, die an diesem berüchtigten Break an die Grenzen gehen. Beweis dafür sind nicht nur die zahlreichen Big Wave Awards mit denen Sebastian in den vergangenen Jahren ausgezeichnet wurde. Für viele aus der Big Wave Community ist Sebastian einer der am besten vorbereiteten und erfahrensten Surfer in Nazaré.

Völlig zurecht wurde Sebastians Ride vom 29. Oktober 2020 in diesem Jahr mit dem Big Wave Award in der Kategorie BIGGEST TOW ausgezeichnet. Über den Ride und die Auszeichnung sagt Sebastian: "Es war episch, ein ganz besonderer Moment. "Ich glaube nicht, dass ich jemals zuvor so schnell auf einem Surfbrett gewesen bin. Ich möchte mich einfach bei meinem Team, meinen Partnern und allen bedanken, die an mich glauben und mir geholfen haben, meinen Traum zu verwirklichen."
