"the surfer you think did the most for the surf community as a whole, exhibited a friendly surf spirit and did it all without expecting anything in return."

That describes Colleen Brennen to a T. Not only does she take care of the Tsunami sim for us and is instrumental with the tandem competitions, she has the friendliest spirit in the surf community. I don't know how she does it, she doesn't have an ill word about anybody and is a friend to us all. Not to mention her past work on board, current work as an advisor, her efforts for the international competition, her help with Surfwatch. I could go on, but we all know what she does and the friendly attitude and spirit with what she does it.

I'll second Bobbi's nomination for Colls, but make another one too... :-)

I'd like to nominate Sally LaSalle. I've had the privilege to be involved in a lot of the behind the scenes stuff this past season since the acquisition of the new SLSA sim. Sal (and Abel and Desi) have put in more hours than you can imagine and never made a big deal about it. Not only has she built a lot of what we see at the sim, Sal has worked very hard in research and development of objects and techniques that have applicability for any sim to help improve performance for the competitions (and some have been used this past season).

I've never known Sal to do anything to try to get personal recognition for all of this time and effort on behalf of the SLSA, and would like others to know about what I've personally seen her do (er..... wrt SLSA that is).

Sometimes it's hard to find, but usually there really is a silver lining back there. Maybe that lining's frayed a little, but most of the time it's there.

I was torn between two really special people to nominate for this and you guys took care of one already! Col is the embodiment of this award. I'd also like to nominate Syx Toshi. idk how much anyone knows of all he does across the board for SL surfing because he stays so low profile but take a deeper look and you'll find someone who has promoted the sport at so many different levels and capacities - from running a surf sim, running a surf blog, supporting the ASA in many different ways, promoting surfboard design, running for the Board, and on and on.
