It's down to the wire for your last chance to vote in the 45th annual SURFER Poll to help decide the best of 2015. Last year, history was made when John Florence ousted longtime fan favorite Kelly Slater from the top of the Poll and six-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore reclaimed her place at the top of the women's Poll. Florence's win put an end to Slater's 10-year reign at the top, but this year, the top rung is still anyone's game.

Visit SurferPoll.com to cast your votes for the men's Top 10 and the women's Top 5 before midnight on Oct. 31 (PDT). In addition to helping write history, you'll be entered to win gear provided by event sponsors, including an exclusive New Era SURFER Poll hat, Martin guitar LXK2, GoPro HERO4 Session cameras, a grand prize two-night stay at Turtle Bay Resort and Nexen Tire gear.

This year's SURFER Poll winners will be announced on Dec. 6 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 handed out for the best films and performances of the year, including honors for Best Barrel, Breakthrough Performer, Best Short and Movie of the Year.
Working media are invited to attend and cover the biggest night in surfing. To request attendance, complete the online credential request form: www.surfermag.com/surfer-poll/surfer-poll-media-credentials/

Special thanks to SURFER Magazine partners Nexen Tire, Martin Guitar, New Era, Peligroso Tequila, GoPro, Dos Equis and Turtle Bay Resort for helping to bring the biggest night in surfing to life.
