Volcom’s VQS Seaslug Surf Series – El Porto, Manhattan Beach, CA

Volcom Stone’s VQS Seaslug Surf Series – El Porto, Manhattan Beach, CA

The Seaslug Surf Series came alive this last weekend in the South Bay. El Porto, Manhattan Beach that is, and before sunrise there was a line of 30+ cars waiting in the dark for the parking lot gates to open. The light of day revealed that recent run off had formed the El Porto sand bars and along with 2-4ft surf made for psyching Groms that couldn’t wait to jump in the water. The rowdy bunch of kids wrestled their way through the day, attacked standout Chris Ward with Muscle Milk, and still found time to surf their heats. Check out all of the days events below!

The Seaslug event was graced with fun peaks up and down the beach!

Chris Ward attacks an El Porto gem!

Better watch out, the Manhattan beach kids are a rowdy bunch, just ask Curt Harper!

Special thanks to CHIPOTLE for catering lunch and keeping the competitors happy!

Sam Regan surfed well throughout the day, but came up short in the Juniors final and settled for 5th.

The winners and just a few of the many prizes they received from RIVIERA SKATEBOARDS, GLOBE SHOES, KICKER, and GOPRO.

Eithan Osborne crushed it in the Grom’s division and earned himself a 1000 points towards qualifying for the VQS World Champs.
