Next pro / Dancing with the Stars contestant? Ry Craike.

Ah, the Surfer Poll…as always, so predictable, yet so predictably awesome. I won’t bore you with the details, so here are some abbreviated highlights from last night’s Surfer Poll Awards in Anaheim, Ca: Multiple mentions of Alana Blanchard’s ass-ets. Dane Reynold’s acceptance speech consisted of thanking his girlfriend for giving him vitamin C and Quiksilver for the stickers. Kelly Slater won. Cory Lopez got tube ride of the year for his never-ending African mystery left in 5’5″ x 19 1/4″ Redux. And apparently, if you’re from West Oz, you’re flipping awesome. No surprises, but tons of radness. To quote Ry Craike mid-DC Shoes bus dance-off, “this is the best night of my life!”
