Voting for the 45th annual SURFER Poll is now open at SurferPoll.com through October 31st. A tradition recognized as the only awards in surfing that are completely decided by the fans, SURFER Poll gives readers the chance to cast a vote for their 10 favorite male and five favorite female surfers who will then be recognized during the annual awards ceremony in December.
Last year, John Florence dethroned 19-time reigning SURFER Poll king Kelly Slater and Stephanie Gilmore topped the women’s Poll.
This year’s winners will be announced on Dec. 6, 2015 at the invite-only awards ceremony at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu with a live webcast at SurferPoll.com. Awards will also be divvyed up for the best films and performances of the year including honors for Best Barrel, Breakthrough Performer, Best Short and Movie of the Year, to name a few.
Special thanks to SURFER Magazine partners Nexen Tire, Martin Guitar, New Era, GoPro, Dos Equis and Turtle Bay Resort for helping to bring the biggest night in surfing to life.
