Every year the ASP Awards Banquet gets the world's best surfers together and has them looking, well, their best. We threw our team on a big bus, made them walk the red carpet (some more begrudgingly than others — we're lookin' at you John John), and then proceeded to have a ball! Check it all out here, in our second installment of #TOURNOTES, your look inside life on the World Tour. Congrats to John John, who took home Rookie of the Year and for the first time ever wore a suit that wasn't a wetsuit (it was a fitted Hugo Boss, we'll have you know). Other huge congrats go to Ace, Carissa and Lakey who also took home awards. Click through for more photos from the star-studded affair and to see who won what.
Carissa accepting her award for Maneuver of the Year — voted on by her peers so you know it's deserved.
Lakey won Breakthrough Women's Performer of the Year.
Nat Young (possible 2013 Rookie of the Year?), Kolohe Andino and John John Florence (2012 Rookie of the Year).
The Simpsons and the Buchans, Danielle and Beck giving meaning to better (looking) halves.
The ASP doesn't give out awards for being ridiculously good looking but if they did, Jules and his girlfirend Ashley would for sure win.
Ace accepting the Peter Whittaker Award.
John John Florence, 2012 Rookie of the Year.
