Carlsbad, CA — (SBWIRE) — 09/13/2013 — The Action Sports Hall of Fame has announced the first class of inductees for 2013.

The winners were chosen through a worldwide vote that took place on their website during the last year.  Fans voted for their favorite athletes from the sports of Surfing, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Skiing, Motocross/FMX, and BMX/Mountain Biking.

“We’ve been blown away by the amount of enthusiasm, support, and votes from the fans around the world,” said founder Matt Savage.  “We established the first hall of fame that lets the fans decide who gets inducted, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.   The first class is pretty large, and we will only add about 5 athletes a year in each sport in the future.  Once the dust settles, we will add more nominees to the current list, open up the voting again, and let the fans decide who will be inducted in 2014.”
