From the red carpet, to exclusive interviews with the winners, to all the highlights from the emotional and action-packed evening, FUEL TV has captured it all. Airing January 5, 2011, and nine more times over the next week, the 40th Annual “Biggest Night in Surfing” gives viewers a unique look into a legendary event that unites the world of surfing, filmmaking, and philanthropy to honor the best in the sport.
With the event’s relocation to the North Shore of Oahu, as well as Kelly Slater’s recent 10th world title victory and the untimely loss of surfing legend Andy Irons weighing heavily on the night, the show was undeniably the most memorable to date. You don’t want to miss this special hour-long show.
