LESS THAN TWO WEEKS LEFT TO JOIN THE “COLLECTIVE VOICE” AND VOTE IN THE 2009 SURFER POLL
Vote at http://www.surferpoll.com by Aug. 15 and win a chance to attend this year’s Awards Ceremony
Less than two weeks remain to vote in the annual SURFER Poll. This year, it’s all about joining the “Collective Voice” to help choose the top 10 male and top 5 female surfers of the year. Votes can be cast until midnight on August 15th at SurferPoll.com.
Between surf brand and media websites, Twitter, Facebook, and personal blogs, the internet has been abuzz over the last few months with SURFER Poll activity and chatter. Fans have been campaigning for their favorite surfers, and brands have been promoting their athletes. It’s going to be a race to the finish to see who will earn top honors this year, and an interesting study to see how new media effects the outcome.
“We’re seeing record voting this year,” says SURFER Editor In Chief, Joel Patterson. “There’s a lot of excitement about younger surfers, and we may just see a significant influx of new names in the final tally, but the numbers are close and we won’t know until the polls close in a couple weeks. But everyone should go online and cast their ballot, because one vote could sway the balance of power this year.”
The 37th annual SURFER Poll and Video Awards presented by American Suzuki & Ultimate Wave Tahiti will be announced at an exclusive invite-only ceremony on September 15th at The Grove of Anaheim. For those who’ve never attended the exclusive event, this year offers a chance to win VIP passes. Each online vote in the SURFER Poll provides an opportunity for one lucky winner and three guests to attend the ceremony alongside the world’s best surfers of past and present, where they will witness history being made in person.
Mark your calendars—the Awards Ceremony will be webcast live the evening of September 15th.
