Ventura County Fairgrounds – April 27, 2014


Wind was the name of the game this weekend. Saturday blew so hard that even the kite boarders were staying at home. So it was a huge surprise that when we showed up Sunday morning to C-st that there was no wind… In fact it was really fun. Waves were in the head high range all day with a few bigger sets. This was the last event of the season for our area and there were some stand out performances to note. Adam Hogue nailed a 9 and an 8 in his short board semi. This was the highest heat total this year. SJ Murphy won every heat on his way to the final in the Short board division. In the Girls Short board final Gracey George laid down a frontside carve that would of scored well in the boys division. This score was a 9.5 and secured the win. In the Boys shortboard final Sam Reichel asked the judges where he should surf before the final and taking their advice dropped a 9 and a 6.5 to take the win. This event had all the makings to be a nightmare but with all the good vibes and happy kids the wind didn’t pose a problem till just as the event ended. Congrats to all the competitors on a great season!
