SURFER Awards 2017: Worst Wipeout

The Best of the Worst

It’s time to vote for the worst wipeout of the year, where you, the reader, get to vicariously live through five of the worst elevator drops, hold-downs, and spills caught on camera, and decide who did it worst — Er, best. From a former Dubai rugby player who took on Mullaghmore to Tom Lowe hitting the eject button at Nazaré, this year’s surfers put their safety on the line for that one memorable ride. Watch each of the nominees below and then submit your vote before Sunday, November 26th at 11:59 PM PST. The fan-favorite will be announced on Monday, December 4th.
