STORY CATEGORY JUDGE

Taylor Steele
The most influential surf filmmaker of all time? They didn’t name one of surfing’s most dominant eras the Momentum Generation for nothing. Taylor has done it all, from fact paced high-energy hits of the 90s, to beautiful cinematic travel based films, to profile films, music videos, he even chased one swell from Tahiti to Alaska. His latest film Missing showcased a different side to three time World Champion Mick Fanning as he was set loose on the world for three months to get lost. He famously created the clip based viral surf competition Innersection, and his music video for Unwritten Law's Teenage Suicide was nominated for Billboard's Alternative Music Video of the Year in 1999.

YOUTH CATEGORY JUDGE

Jack McCoy
The big daddy legend of classic surf films has at one time or another touched us all. From his earliest offerings McCoy encouraged us to travel to far flung nations in search of perfection. The dream was surfing and we could all be a part of it. Throughout the late 80s and early 90s his tongue in cheek Billabong efforts could be quoted by groms and legends alike and his portfolio of documentary style profile films such as Sabotaj, The Occumentary and Blue horizon are definitive classics of surf film. His latest film, A Deeper Shade of Blue is his opus, a gift to surfing for aloha.
