A1Surf.com, the UK’s website for the surfing community, is sponsoring the ‘Surfer of the Year Award’ category, part of the inaugural ‘H30 British Isles Surf Awards’.
The awards, which are in association with Carve Magazine, are organised by the Surfstock Festival, which takes place in St Agnes on 29-30 August.
They will be presented to the winners during the two-day festival in a huge 42-foot yurt, which has been provided by the Driftwood Gallery.
The ‘A1Surf Surfer of the Year Award’ will be won by the surfer who has done the most for British surfing this year, as decided by votes from the public.
Nominations for this category include Rik ‘Peg Leg’ Bennett, Ben Skinner, Ben Granata, Easkey Britton, Chris Hines and Alex Wade.
The awards celebrate the achievements of surfers across the UK and Ireland, offering prizes in eight categories to be decided by a panel of elite judges and the surfing public.
