At this year’s SURFER Poll award ceremony, sponsored by SURFER Mag and yours truly, the House of Marley, the greatest surfing stars of the ASP Pro Tour and beyond aligned for one magical night in Oahu. Legendary riders like Kelly Slater, Joel Parkinson and Mick Fanning hung out amongst breakout stars including Nat Young and Coco Ho and celebrated another killer year of surfing.
Honoring the best and brightest in 2013, the SURFER Poll annually gives out awards for Best Male/Female Surfer, Best Barrel, Worst Wipeout, Best Movie Of The Year and other sick surfing achievements. Voted on by the readers of the illustrious surf mag, perennial favorite Kelly Slater won the honors for Best Male Surfer in 2013, while upstart Alana Blanchard beat out world champ Carissa Moore for the women’s award.
The 2013 SURFER Poll party was a blast and it was great getting to hang out with all of the best surfers in the world. If you weren’t able to attend or watch the event, fret not!
