Just finished up here in North Carolina, and super psyched to be ending our East Coast tour with a podium finish here at the WRV/Hurley OBX Pro. This event was the 5th stop on the Western Atlantic Pro Surf Series and offered the highest prize purse on the East Coast this year. After surfing two weeks of super fun surf, we were greeted with nearly flat conditions for the event, so it was even more special to make the final because each heat was absolute work to advance through. This result bumped me up to third on the WAPSS ratings just a couple hundred points behind current ratings leader Jeremy Johnston, going into the last two events. Here are a couple photos from the comp…Special thanks to the legend Jeff Weatherall, who multi tasked as Coach, photog, video guy, team manager, and hype man....
Final Results :
1st Asher Nolan $10,000
2nd Michael Dunphy $5,000
3rd Ben Bourgeois $3,000
4th Jesse Heilman $2,000
