Danish Surf Awards – registration of nominations

Help us to recognise and grant those who have a great influence on the Danish surf scene (surf, windsurf, kitesurf and SUP). It can be because of their performance, or because of the inspiration they give to the community. We hope that the whole surf environment in Denmark will help us to find them, by nominating the right persons, and later, by voting for the favorite candidates. Last year the candidates received over 7000 votes! That is pretty cool for our small surf environment !
