A New King Is Crowned At Surfer Poll

On a warm Saturday evening, the upper echelon of the surf industry found themselves huddled together on the sweeping grounds of Turtle Bay resort for the 45th Surfer Poll awards, held right here on Oahu's North Shore. With mai-tais, local beers, and plenty of shakas on tap, the surf industry big-wigs—which included athletes, CEOs, marketing heads, and their better halves just to name a few—talk storied under a pastel sunset before the awards show officially started. Think of the vibe as an Oscars pre-party meets North Shore barbecue and you've got the gist. If you're unfamiliar with the awards show, every year, Surfer Magazine polls their readers for a top 10 and 10 5 list of the most adored surfers in the world. For the better part of the past two decades, Kelly Slater's found himself in the number-one position.

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.
