Ventura County Fairgrounds Feb 2, 2013

Saturday Feb. 2nd dawned small with a bit of morning sickness at C-st. By ten in the morning it had cleaned up and was small but fun little runners on the point. By noon it was starting to show the new swell that was predicted to hit much later. By the finals time it was pumping! For the middle school kids this was a make up event that was missed due to rainy conditions and unsafe water. The highlights of today from my point of view were the great nose ride in the boys longboard division by Chase Nelson. The great attitude and smiles from Body Board winner Matty Pierce. Sam Reichel coming straight from a snowboard trip to take his first ever win in the boys shortboard and Poppy Brittingham taking her 3rd straight win in the Girls Shortboard after never winning an event prior to this year.
Great job kids. The Ironman award today goes to Adam Hogue who had 4 heats back-to-back-to-back-to-back and made them all.
