Wave Makers

| April 2, 2012 | Parties

Nearly 800 water warriors up and down O.C.’s coast turned their boards inland and headed to The Grove of Anaheim for the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association’s Image Awards, a night honoring—well, the best and brightest among them, naturally. Celebs like women’s surf legend Lisa Andersen and Pennywise drummer Byron McMackin hit the stage to dole out honors in 16 categories. Among the lucky winners: Stance (Breakthrough Brand of the Year); L*Space by Monica Wise (Women’s Swim Brand of the Year); and Huntington Surf & Sport, which nabbed the title of Retailer of the Year—for guys and gals. And after the awards ended, all those surf stars kept on celebrating well into the night—and maybe even hit the waves the next morning. Photos by Benedick David, Brent Hilleman and Daniel Kintz
