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 look out 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.

This year, we have added more categories:

  • Flow of the Season, for the best free ride wave from someone who makes a positive impact to their community and environment.
  • Grom of the Season, for the best upcoming surfer and attitude of a surfer under 16 yrs old.
  • Best surf image or wipe out upload, for the fans of the athletes. (This is an open entry to any surfer who has a photo of them surfing a wave standing up on a wave face or wiping out. We will then randomly choose a winner from the top 10 entries with the most likes.)

 

Other categories include:

  • Toes on the Nose
  • Biggest Air
  • Wave of the Season

 

Put in your vote along with the 3 best Judges in the Philippines to unearth the biggest charger in the country.
