List Rules Vote up the top surfers hitting the waves right now.

The best surfers in the world right now have conquered waves all over the globe. The top surfers come from nations as far apart as Brazil and France or Australia and the USA, but they all come together at competitions to ride the waves and test their limits. Household names like Kelly Slater and Jordy Smith have been at the top of the game for years, with Slater still wading out into the water in his late 40s. 

Meanwhile, young stars like Filipe Toledo have remade the sport in their image and have brought the kind of youthful energy the surfing world thrives on. Hawaiian star John John Florence topped two 2019 competitions and is chasing down the surfers at the top of the leaderboard. On the women’s side, Carissa Moore and Lakey Peterson have raised their game to separate from the field, but talented surfers like Stephanie Gilmore and Paige Hareb are right there, as well.

So who deserves to be at the top of the list? Who is the best surfer in the world right now? Vote up the current surfers who are most impressive riding the waves.
