Riptide 2014 Women’s Bodyboarder of the Year

Your top five nominees!
The votes have been counted, top 5 and 10 lists collated and videos jammed out – it’s time to start rolling out the top contenders for the Riptide 2014 Bodyboarder of the Year awards! Last week we brought you the Grom of the Year top five and now it’s time for the women’s. Who do you have your eye on? Will Isabela’s reign come to an end at the hands of the youngest world champ ever, Alexandra Rinder? Or could one of the other three girls – Lilly Pollard’s inspirational comeback, for example – cause an upset?

We’ll be rolling out the rest of the top-ranked nominees over the next week in the lead-up to the ABA and Riptide awards night in Sydney on Friday, December 5 where we’ll announce the winners. If you’re going to be in town that night make sure you get along – not only will we present our awards, there’ll also be the world premiere of Tyge Landa’s new film Royal Blood and the ABA will usher in some new inductees into the Australian Bodyboarding Hall of Fame and officially crown this year’s Aussie Tour champ. For more info and tickets click here.
