Passion Comes in Waves

The 14th Annual Surftime Awards: A Night to (try and) Remember

As exclusive as The Lawn in Canggu may look from the outside, it still manages a very organic, tribal vibe on the inside. And the 14th Annual Surftime awards, held there on September 22nd was just that. More of a family gathering than an awards night, this assembly of the best and brightest of our surfing community was at once a joyous, raucous and very, very loud affair.

Underneath The Lawn’s umbrellas and upstairs on the VIP deck, our surfing community had a big night. Freeflow from Wild Turkey, Skyy Vodka and Bintang made sure of that. The awards themselves were a simple affair this year, but the trophies were spectacular. The authentic Wayang puppet trophies that have become part of the Surftime Legacy were a big hit. All in all, a great night for our Surfing Community. An important night that serves to remind us all what a remarkable family we belong to here in Indonesia. What a remarkable tribe we are part of. And what a remarkable environment we all get to share here in one of the most magical places on earth.
