2015 Winners

2015 was a great year for the Salt Life Food Shack Big Wave Challenge. We had 300 total participants and several hundred photo and video submissions spread all throughout the state! Winners were chosen in three categories based on most votes for Fan Favorite and by a panel of judges for Big Wave, Best Huck and Best Hack. In total, the Challenge awarded over $10,000 in cash and prizes including money, a Costa Rican vacation package complete with fishing trip, and an honorary surfboard.
