As part of its 50th anniversary, SURFER magazine compiled a list of the "50 Greatest Surfers of All Time."
Surfer polled pro surfers, photographers, filmmakers, journalists, captains of the industry, and legendary surfers themselves to cast votes to determine the list. Please go to:
Surfer Magazine: 50 Greatest Surfers of All Time
There is also a list of who participated in the poll.
Additionally, for each of the 50 surfers listed, there is a link to a brief bio about them. Nice feature.
Personally, I have a lot of problems with this list, but who am I? All of us surfers' lists would be different. For me, I guess it boils down to what one's definition is of the word "greatest" and "best."
