Thomas Stoekli – Former Snowboard Photographer

Browsing the web we came upon an interview on former professional snowboard photographer named Thomas Stoeckli who said, “I could not imagine myself being a 40-year-old dude traveling all year with 16-year-olds”.
God, this is so true as well in the surfing world, but goes both ways. Most 16 year old pro surfers would rather travel with a photographer in their twenties or early thirties and if your a photographer in your forties or fifties and you want to travel with 16 year old kids, then that’s a little creepy.

Our Vote For The Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards

Here is Your Ballot to Vote for the 2013 Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards

Dear Member of the XXL Voting Academy,
This email is being sent to all surfers and photographers who have ever been involved in the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards along with key journalists who cover the sport and other respected legends. Your input will decide the winners in the subjective categories of the 2013 XXL Awards and I look forward to receiving your votes. This is for you only — do not forward it to others.

Please go to the updated BillabongXXL.com event website at your earliest opportunity and review the nominated videos and still photos in the Ride of the Year, Pacifico Tube and Wipeout of the Year categories and reply with your votes as outlined below. (As always, the height awards — Pacifico Paddle and XXL Biggest Wave — will be determined by a separate panel of measurement judging experts.) You are to rank the Ride of the Year candidates in order 1st through 5th. Just select the single winning photo for Pacifico Tube.

Also, please name the individuals you recognize as the Male and Female top performers of the year based on everything you know, have read, or heard from reliable sources about who did what all year long. The performance nominee pages feature a few symbolic images for each surfer, but you should consider all performances at all spots over the course of the whole year in deciding your vote. You may review all the original XXL entries at the Billabong XXL YouTube Channel if you like.

Please reply as soon as possible by email only and include your name in the subject line, especially if you have an obscure email address. All votes will be kept secret, but feel free to explain your motivation for your picks. The final deadline for votes is Sunday, April 28 at 5 PM PDT. Absolutely no votes will be considered after that moment.

Thanks for your involvement in the XXL Awards and I look forward to seeing you at the Grove of Anaheim Theater on May 3 for the big event!

Regards,
Event Director

Judging Criteria and Guidance: The Basic Evaluation Criteria in determining the Billabong XXL Ride of the Year Award shall be:

“The Billabong XXL Ride of the Year Award will be won by the individual surfer who — based on review of available video images by a panel of experts — demonstrates the most advanced and committed level of big wave surfing performance during a single successful ride during the event period.”

The following additional guidance will be provided:

“While the determination of excellence will always be a subjective matter, the panel is urged to reward sustained performance throughout the entirety of a ride, including the overall quality and quantity of maneuvers or critical positions achieved, and to value the skill of the surfer in a challenging situation above the good fortune presented purely by the unique shape of a particular wave.”
