This is the award announcement and acceptance speech of Derek Dunfee. Derek won the Billabong XXL Monster Paddle Award for 2008. The award was announced on Friday, April 17, 2009 at the Anaheim Grove. Big thanks to Brandon Lillard for supplying the excitedly shaky video footage. We are all super proud of Derek. Way to go DD!
Zach seen riding his new favorite board; a 5'6" quad (small wind swell PB). It's not any thicker than his normal short board. Zach now prefers this board to any short board he's ever ridden. He says it's super fun in any conditions.
