And the winners are…!

Best Movie – Dirty Old Wedge
Presented by Joël de Rosnay and Maritxu Darrigrand: “The decision was not easy, but eventually we agreed pretty quickly. This film was the one who brought together all these values dear to surfers. For those who already have seen, the Wedge is an incredible artificial wave, and see this group of bodysurfers tame this way, it’s just amazing. ”

Best Edit – Fish
Presented by Lee Ann Curren: “We wanted to reward the work of archives and fun animation performed for this documentary. It has all made us want to lock themselves in a studio, to shape his own surfboard from A to Z, and go to surf it. And with the fish, to find a more oldschool slides that I do particularly right now. ”

Best Sound track – Mares del Sur
Presented by Lee Ann Curren: “this film is one of the favorites of the jury it was not easy to choose which reward it. Finally, we choose the music, the same that carried us throughout the film. The original soundtrack, poetry, in Spanish, which has put us in the mood from beginning to end. ”

Best Shooting – Peninsula Mitre
Presented by Bruno Ledoux “. An incredible journey, a human adventure, an expedition that made us all traveling. The Azulay brothers have once again shown their talent and more than worth the price.”
