The 2012 Australian Surf Industry awards and Surf Summit was held at the Manly Pacific Hotel on the 28th of March.


Presented by the Surf Retailers Federation, the night was open to all surf retailers in Australia.

SRF President Anthony Wilson saw the night as an opportunity to celebrate the surf industries achievements of the past 12 months.

Anthony said his motivation for organising the awards night was from seeing surf brands using SIMA awards in the States and wanted to replicate these awards in Australia.

Welcoming over 200 surf retails and wholesalers at the awards night, Anthony said that he saw the awards as a "massive opportunity to unity surf retail and industry with enhanced communication", and he looked forward to the awards night being an annual event.

In keeping with the spirit of the day - "it's all about surf" - a surf tag event was run before the awards night between retailers and wholesalers, with WA retailer Ian "Wooly" MacPherson claiming victory for the surf retailers.

A full list of all the award winners are listed below.
