Since the Surfer Poll Awards were last night, today was a long one for many at Lowers, including me. I don’t know who’s been planning things lately in the surf industry, but one things for sure they want to keep us busy. ASR was last week, the Boost kicked off on Monday, the Surfer Poll was last night, and Surf Expo starts Friday in Orlando. Although, come think of it, it has been like this for the past few years.
Back to the contest. Do I even have to tell you who the standout was. Slates was #1 in the Surfer Poll, as usual, he threw down some of the highest scores today including a 10, as usual, and he was the center of attention, as usual.
Other standouts from day besides “The Bald Wonder” include: Mick Fanning, Dane Reynolds, Bobby Martinez (and that Rincon Backhand) and Jordy Smith.
