Volcom’s VQS Goldfish Surf Series – Pismo Pier
The Goldfish Surf Series went nuts this weekend at Pismo Pier! After canceling the previous weekend due to severe stormy weather we rolled the dice and ran the event on the following weekend, and man did it pay-off. We pulled up the pier in the morning to zero winds and solid waist to head high waves. Once the tent city was erected and the over anxious Groms were signed up, we kicked this thing with a bang.
Bummy Keopenick lost early but was in great spirits all day playing with his air gun!
The day graced us with a temperature of 75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. The kids ran around like maniacs all day and the parents cursed our names as we brought out the chocolate syrup and flour. After everyone got their fill of delicious Chipotle it was time to roll into the final and crown a winner! Check out the recap from the day’s event.
The crowd was going nuts all day, one Grom even walked away with the Watermelon award given to the craziest kid!
The Juniors had tough heats all day, here is blue showing you how to advance!
