Danish Surf Awards

Danish Surf Awards is a new concept, which is developed in cooperation with Surf Club NASA. First edition of the event will take place during the Cold Hawaii Surf & Film Festival, on 4th of May 2019

The goal is to recognize and grant those who have a great influence on the Danish surf scene. 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.
