A week ago on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, the surfing world converged to celebrate the SURFER Poll Awards 2012. Presented by Surfer Magazine and the House of Marley, the surf industry honored the top professional surfers, including big winners Kelly Slater and Stephanie Gilmore.
Hosted by sports commentator Sal Masekela, the large audience of surfers at the SURFER Poll Awards 2012 were regaled with amazing surf videos of industry leaders like John Florence, Dane Reynolds, Alana Blanchard and CoCo Ho. Surfer Magazine awarded winners in several categories including the film “Dear Surburbia” (Movie of the Year), Mark Matthews (Worst Wipeout) and Gabriel Mendez for his breakout performance this year.
