2013 SIMA Lifetime Achievement Award Tribute Video
This weekend the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) recognized Australian surfer Peter Townend—aka ‘PT’—for his life-long contribution to the sport and industry of surfing at the annual Waterman’s Ball. PT has been an idol, mentor, associate and family friend to me over the years. All of us who make our living from our passion for surfing owe this man a huge debt of gratitude for the many things he has done as a leader for the sport of amateur and professional surfing, and the multi-billion dollar action sports industry.
Enjoy this tribute video from the awards night and understand this man’s impact on the global surf culture. Congrats Mate!
