The finalists for the 2017 Australian Surf Industry Awards have been decided!
With over 120 nominations across 30 categories ranging from State Retailers to Men’s and Ladies Brand of the Year, the Awards are a true celebration of industry achievement – and Rip Curl is very proud to announce that the company has been nominated for a whopping 10x Awards.
Launched in 2011, the SBIA Awards has become a trademark for innovation, improvement and advancement within the surf industry. Voting for the awards is conducted annually throughout a three-week period, in which the voting premise is simple – brands and manufacturers vote for retailers, and retailers vote for brand, product and service awards.
In 2016 Rip Curl took home the Wetsuit of the Year award for the all-new Flashbomb, and will be aiming for back-to-back achievements in the category for 2017.
