Tommy Tant Memorial & Red Bull Tow-at
Coming up on the first weekend of November is the Tommy Tant Memorial. This is always a special event for me not only because I have won it a couple times in the past, but more so because of the relationship I have built with the Tant Family over the years. They are some of the most loving and caring people on the face of the earth, and this event which is memorial for Tommy (who was an talented local surfer who was pursuing a career in surfing before he passed away) is a staple event for our community and one that everyone who is involved looks forward to throughout the year. This year the event is even more exciting for me as Alpinestars has signed on as a supporting sponsor, as well as Red Bull who is going to be holding an invite only Tow-at night expression session. This means that on Saturday night the boys from Red Bull are going to set up stadium lighting off the Flagler pier and will have a couple jet skis in the water, Whipping the 6 invited surfers at the waves, so we can put on a show for the crowd. I am super psyched, and cannot wait to compete this year. Be sure to check back for more updates on the event and photos and video from the festivities!!!!
