The 2018 top gong was awarded to World Surf League, World Qualifying Series surfer, Freya Prumm following a massive year both in and out of surfing.
Freya checked soo many boxes for the win this year. A total commitment to surfing in general and during her WSL Qualifying Series campaign is just the start. We have personally witnessed the amount of cross-training, holistic health, diet, mind-set, travel & work all whilst completing her uni degree in Pharmacy this year. Freya has also been working hard on her air-game & won an air-show in Japan earlier this year which also checked off an innovation aspect to this award.
Freya couldn't make our awards so she sent in a heart felt message via video after getting 'the call' from Saltlocker founder Kim 'Eulo' Eulenstein the night before the big day. Freya thanked the ongoing support from her friends, family, sponsors, athletes and longterm supporters stating 'she has never won anything like this before'. Freya noted she was incredibly humbled to receive such and award and also thanked those who nominated her and the Saltlocker judging panel.
Massive congrats Frey! A well deserved win. Looking forward to seeing you compete in 2019.
