The surfer who rode the biggest wave of the past winter, the surfer who got the best ride of the past winter, the surfer who survived the worst wipe out and the surfer who did the most to help the surfing community will be recognized during the South Bay Boardriders Club’s annual awards night on Saturday night. Though traditionally held at Hermosa Beach Community Center, this year’s event will be held at the Roadium Drive-in.

As a result, this may be the first year the waves projected at the awards may be bigger than were  the waves themselves. Waves must have been caught between Indicator in Palos Verdes and Dockweiler State Beach in El Segundo, and between Nov. 1, 202, and march 31, 2021.

“Endless Winter,” Brad Jacobson’s video of the past winter;, Blackline Logo’s compilation of the past winter’s SBBC Virtual Surf Series; and the cult classic “North Shore”  will also be shown on the big screen.

The awards presentations begin at 6:30 p.m., Saturday May 22. Tickets are $40 and may be purchased at SouthBayBoardriders.com. The Roadium Drive-in is located at 2500 W. Redondo Beach Blvd., Torrance. ER
