Kelly Slater is our Warriors of Winter Judge!

We are stoked to announce that this year’s guest judge for Warriors of Winter 20/21 will be none other than Kelly Slater. Kelly will be picking this year’s winner from a shortlist of entries and the winner will win a custom surfboard of their choosing plus a bonus Slater Designs surfboard and a full wetsuit set up from Xcel.

We have had some amazing entries so far this year, but there is still plenty of time to get your entry in before the closing period 23:59 on 28th March 2021.

Competition Recap:

Out of the depths of the Atlantic winter come rare moments of perfection, classic days when the wind, swell and tide align. As British and Irish surfers these are the days we live for. Flaming beacons among the dark nights and storms.

To celebrate these moments, the British and Irish winter swell chasers and our unique shared surf culture Down the Line and Carve have partnered up to launch the #WarriorsOfWinter.

The photo and video competition aims to celebrate the best waves ridden around the UK and Ireland during the winter months.

The winner and overall ‘Warrior’ of the winter will WIN A CUSTOM BOARD of their choice from any of the world-class shapers that *we stock plus a full winter wetsuit kit.
