KSB AWARDS is an annual online surf event that showcases surfing talent across the Philippines though the ecommerce market place www.KSBoardriders.com.  We bring the best brands and surfers in the Philippines together each year to award the “KS Boardriders Award”.

Typhoons and Monsoon winds light up our playground all around the Philippines. We are blessed with a long season of tropical weather with large swells from the Pacific and West Philippine Sea. 

The Philippines is home to some of the best upcoming surfers. With surfing now gaining more recognition, as it made its debut at the recent 2020 Olympic Games, we want our athletes to excel in the sport, culture, and the right attitude at an international level.

KSBoardriders.com is on the lookout for the stand out surfers of the season. With islands of pumping surf all around the Philippines, we want to discover up and coming surfers, as well as experienced surfers, as they bust the biggest air, pull into the largest pit, or style their way across a wave.
