Every once in a while someone sits behind the scenes and develops RIDICULOUS talent until he or she reaches the breaking point. Then the flood gates open. Well consider those water retaining devices as good as demolished. Filipe Toledo is rampaging across the 2012 WQS and its only mid March. How is this perfect 10 shot by a cell phone of an adoring fan?
Hey AUS crew, Firewire is happy to announce that two of our models have been nominated for 2012 Board of the Year in this year’s Australian Surf Industry Awards, the Hellfire and the Sweet Potato. Click here and show your Firewire pride. Also its fun to vote for all the other stuff too.
Every year, prior to the kickoff at Snapper Rocks, a series of awards are given out at the ASP Banquet. There are speeches and awards based on performances and probably a bit of tasty food given out. A little known, but prestigious award is that of the Surfers’ Surfer Award, also know as the Surfers’ Peer Vote. Basically its the boys on tour taking the time to recognize a surfer who stood out on and off his board. This year, that honor was given to Michel. A true sign of respect!
Great little interview with the power-surfing new father!
