‘The Right’ by Ren McGann.

Winner of the Nikon Surf Video of the Year Award was Andrew Kaineder for his piece ‘Flow State’.

Capturing the true intensity and beauty of the surf, these winners represent some of the best in Australian surf photography and videography.

They were chosen by a panel of 10 high-profile judges from within the surfing industry including Nikon Brand Ambassador and seven-time World Surfing Champion, Stephanie Gilmore.

Ren McGann will be awarded with the Nikon Z 6 kit, while Andrew Kaineder will take home the Nikon Z 7.

The awards will be presented in late April via a television format that replaces the Surfing Australia Awards Night for 2020.
