How the Winners Are Chosen
In following our criteria for choosing the winners (Ambassadorship, Involvement, Performance and Support), to help us decide the winners of these awards, we here at Supconnect go through an extremely rigorous process in selecting the winners. We consult and receive feedback from our advisory board, whose members are made up of those who are passionately involved in the sport of standup paddling and who have a unique take on the sport, we take into account the thousands of interactions with the Awards from fans and consumers, we add in our own feedback from our editorial board and we've also had extensive feedback and contact with retailers in the industry.
Winners will be announced in two seperate venues: at the Outdoor Retailer show in August and at the Surf Expo in September. Gear of the Year award winners will be announced at Outdoor Retailer and the remaining categories will be announced at the Supconnect/AWSI Awards Party during the Surf Expo.
