The history of Australian surfing boasts a rich heritage of champions and innovators and as part of Surfing Australia’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, Australia’s 10 Most Influential Surfers 1963-2013 will be named.

The campaign to find the most influential surfers is being conducted through a public vote and through votes provided by the 34 Inductees in Australia’s Surfing Hall of Fame.

The result will be revealed at the 2013 Australian Surfing Awards in Sydney on 20th February.

Australia’s 10 Most Influential Surfers 1963-2013 is based on the following criteria: “The Australian surfer who through their surfing, and their wider contribution, has had the most profound influence on the national character of Australian surfing.”

Ever since Midget Farrelly won the inaugural World Title at Manly in 1964, Australia has provided a consistent supply of world champions including multiple title holders Layne Beachley, Mark Richards, Tom Carroll, Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore.

But it’s not just in competition where the country has excelled. There is a long list of Australian pioneers who have been at the forefront of the sport’s innovation and style. From Nat Young and Bob McTavish ushering in the shortboard era to Simon Anderson and his three-fin thruster design, Australians have had a major influence on the sport of surfing.
