Since 2003, The Surftime Awards (brought to us by Surftime Magazine) has famously celebrated the very best of surfing culture in Bali and Indonesia. Now, in its 14th year, the Surftime Awards 2017 returned for another hugely anticipated party to honour the country’s best in surf.
There are awards that honor everyone from the year’s best surfer, to the best Industry leader, from the year’s best photographer, to the best advertising campaign of the year. They have also grown to include Industry Awards (which kicked off the night), with awards such as Best Product of the Year, Best Surf School, Best Surf Shop, Hottest Industry Performer, Best Event, Best New Brand, Best Surfboard and Boardshort of the Year. This is to single out top performing brands and those involved in the surf industry.
Last year, the day started with a big Kuta beach clean-up and free surf lessons for the Yayasan orphanage, where a group of underprivileged children get to share in the joy of the sea in partnership with odysseys surf school and celebrity instructors.
Learn surfing with the most fun surf school in Bali and maybe we’ll see you in a future surftime award for best barrel or… the award for the worst wipeout 🙂 .
