Volcom’s VQS Greatwhite Surf Series – 26th Ave, Santa Cruz, Ca

The Greatwhite Surf Series went down this past weekend at 26th Street in sunny Santa Cruz, Ca. We pulled up to the beach in the morning as the sun peeked over the mountains and lit up the Pacific Ocean. Our Jaws hit the floor as a meaty 6-8 ft approached. So we gathered the parents and competitors to make a decision and it was a unanimous, we were a go! We signed up over a 100 competitors and sent the Juniors in the water for their early morning beat down. As the day progressed on the waves just got better and better. There was never a breeze over 3 MPH and before we knew it, it was time for some delicious Chipotle burritos. After the competitors had their fill of surf and food it was time to crown a Champ!

Once again the Greatwhite event was blessed with amazing surf!

Santa Cruz offers some strange characters and some epic waves!

John Wilson put in a solid performance in the Pro-Am Division and finished off the day in 5th.

Top notch surfing and beach fun had spectators hanging around all day!

Nick H‘dez was surfing well beyond his years! He walked away with the Grom division win!

The Squids had their work cut out for them with the waves being at least triple overhead on these little dudes!

Man hacks #263 of the event!

The winners walked away with prizes from KICKER, RIVIERA SKATEBOARDS, FUTURE FINS, and many more!
