Annual Surfer Poll Awards Bring the Pros to Turtle Bay

The world’s best surfers are coming to Turtle Bay for the annual Surfer Poll Awards on December 6. For the past few years, the resort has played host to Surfer Magazine’s annual poll awards, where surf fans from all over the world vote for their favorite surfer. In the past, Kelly Slater has taken top honors more than any other surfer. This year, with world-title showdown in the works and the rise of Brazil’s Gabriel Medina, we could be poised to see changing of the guard. But then again, if there’s one thing that we know about Kelly Slater, it that’ he can never be counted of anything.

On the women’s side, Kauai’s own Alana Blanchard will be defending her Surfer Poll title as well. While seating is relegated to an invite-only list, you can always crack open a cold drink with some friends and catch all of the live action at SurferPoll.com.

Whatever you call it, if you surf, you’ve either been there, dreamed of being there, or are planning a trip there. It’s paradise, through and through. Hawaii in general is what you see on postcards: swaying palms, perfect sand, perfect weather, and perfect waves. Although Honolulu – and this is especially true of the Waikiki area – is inundated nearly all year around by tourists, the North Shore stays a little quieter. Keep the country country, as they say. Apart from the media frenzy that descends on Haleiwa every December, the North Shore moves slowly. Roosters complain loudly to each other in the undergrowth just off the bike path, scratching in dirt that, for some reason, is obviously Hawaiian. The Islands may be the only place on earth where, once you’re gone, a person misses the the dirt.
