I had a special correspondent at the Surfer Poll awards this week at The Grove in Anaheim - Ryan Baker, 15, a sophomore at San Clemente High School.
The annual Surfer Poll awards honor the top surfers of the year in several categories and are a big industry party.
Here are some photos of Ryan's perspective of the event.
