Rip Curl Receives Multiple Nominations at the 2016 SURFER Awards
Between scouring the globe for unridden, beautiful lineups on The Search, and supporting an A-team of athletes performing at peak levels, Rip Curl is proud to announce that we’ve received multiple nominations at this year’s SURFER Awards, set to be held on December 6th at Turtle Bay on the North Shore.
With 16 chapters in the books, featuring world class surfers and locations spanning the seven seas, our online video series “The Search” has been nominated for the Best Web series.
Beyond that, North Shore royalty Mason Ho has been a busy man, scoring nominations for an astounding five SURFER awards. His nominations include Best Overall Performance, Best Web Series, Best Barrel, Best Maneuver and Worst Wipeout. It’s been one helluva year for Mason, and we can only cross our fingers and hope for a few wins – it’s about time we get another one of those classic Mason Ho speeches!
But Mason wasn’t the only one to get busy in the past 12 months. Owen Wright and Dillon Perillo both spent a fair bit of time chasing waves and getting shacked silly, receiving nominations for Houdini acts in barrels at Pipeline and Baja Malibu, Mexico.
With that long list of potential awards, we’re also eager to see which of our athletes finish in the top 10 of the SURFER Poll for Men and Women.
Tune in live to the SURFER Poll at 7PM (HST) on Tuesday, December 6th.
