Free entry, prizes, the spirit of competition … plus the chance to have your name up in lights when the WPS site screens up the results.
Saturday, we ran the grom contest …
The waves were small but the kids were small too and the turnout was great! Fifty-six kids ended up showing up at 10th Street in St. Augustine and I had a great time watching the next generation of rippers!
Congrats to all the winners and thank you to all the sponsors; Matix, DVS, Electric, Surf Station, Body Glove, Bullys, G-Shock and Headhunter for giving great prizes!
Here are the final results:
Boys 13-15; 1st Dylan Martini, 2nd Jon Heater, 3rd Cannon Embry, 4th Griffin Coughlin, 5th Casey Priest, 6th Ryan Bromberg.
Menehune 10-12; 1st Patrick Conklin, 2nd Tatum Renfrew, 3rd Si Greamstead, 4th Eric Westbrook, 5th Elena Sporrans, 6th Chase Stevens.
Mini-Groms 9-&-Under: 1st Shawn Arthur, 2nd Samantha Embryo, 3rd Brandon Bryant, 4th Blake Steven, 5th Chase Westbrook, 6th Angel Rodriguez.
A really fun weekend and a bigger turnout than expected, the 9-&-Under division was one to watch, with over 30 groms showing up and the competition was fierce!
Thanks to everyone who helped: Burgess with the ESA, Richie and all the judges for doing a great job! I cant wait for the 2nd annual!
