Rock The Vote: OC Surfer Of The Year


Who’s the best surfer in Orange County? You decided. The annual Orange County Surfer of the Year Awards have got everyone’s trigger finger hot and bothered with an online poll that has fans voting for the best pro male and female, as well as the best male and female up-and-comer. If you’re an avid fan of this blog it should come to no surprise that we’re pulling for Greg Long as best shortboarder and SCHS standout Marissa Shaw for brightest emerging star.

The Register salutes the best each year with the annual Orange County Surfer of the Year Awards. The online poll plugs into fans who vote for the best male and female professional rider – maybe a contestant in the worldwide Association of Surfing Professionals circuit or a lone wolf seeking out the biggest waves wherever they form in the oceans of the earth. A prize goes to the best of the longboarders who cruise the waves in their big boards, keeping alive the “hang ten” tradition of their zinc-nose slathered forefathers and mothers. The awards also honor the next wave of top surfers – the up and coming boys and girls who surf for the fun of it or for their high school or surf team spirit, with perhaps an eye to one day taking on the Kelly Slaters, Andy Irons and Layne Beachleys of the world.

Fans, vote early and often. The last waves of votes will hit the ballot at midnight on July 9. Then the horn blows. The excitement peaks during the U.S. Open of Surfing at Huntington Beach, where the awards ceremony will be held at the Walk of Fame at Jack’s Surfboards on July 23.
