Meet The Judges

Our judges are compiled of young and old (wink, wink) from the North Florida area that are all too familiar with big surf both here and abroad. They can easily recognize a well known spot or less known honey hole from the state of Florida and will have a keen eye for height of the wave, among other details when determining the winning teams.
