Voting starts soon for your fave chappy, Aug 30th to be precise. One of these young men is going to collect a wonderful 50 thousand US dollars! It’s quite a princely sum for about 3 seconds work, I’m sure you’ll agree. Heaven forbid it be us that try to steer the direction of your vote, but allow us to be so bold as to furnish you with some background info about the suitors…

This one is called Chippa, or Christopher. He is a goofyfoot and has ginger-ish hair which hasn’t made life easy growing up in Australia. He likes tattoos, and has one that says ‘Aussie Pride’. This not to be confused with Australia’s Pride March, which occurs around Mardi Gras…

This one is called Ryan Callinan. He is also a goofyfoot, and also an Australian, coming from the Newcastle area. Ryan is 20 years old. His website was last updated 21st August 2011, which makes almost as awesome as this one.

This one is called John John Florence, or John Florence for short. The ASP Europe’s Basque webmaster/IT dude is also called John John, but as far as we know that’s just a coincidence. John John is from Hawaii’s North Shore and is a regularfoot, and is rather good at the surfing. He has an interview in the latest SURF EUROPE magazine by photog Daniel Russo, who is John John’s hero.

This one is called Matt Meola. He comes from Maui and won Innersection in 2011! Yes, he won $100 000 for his part in a surf movie. A hundred grizzle! Even though Kustom awards half of that sum, it is for one air, not a whole section, and thus offers a better hourly rate.

This one is called Albee Layer. Albee! He comes from Maui too, but has never won Innersection. Albee has the best name. Vote for Albee (although that could be something of a wasted vote seeing as everyone already knows JJ is gonna win)…
