Ever wonder what WCTers spend their non-contest time doing? Well this is just a look into one day with Bede Durbidge. The overall winners for the 2008 Sun Diego/MADA Surf Series got hooked up to spend an entire day with Bede around Southern California, and even a shred sesh at Lowers.

The season champs got to spend the day with Bede, which included a surf session with Bede, a tasty breakfast at SC Café, and a walk through at Bede’s sponsors MADA, Ocean Minded and OAM. Not to mention XCEL gave a full suit, Mt Woodgee 2 new hand shaped sticks, and Sector 9 Skates. The overall season champs were Groms Champ Breyden Taylor, Juniors Champ JD Lewis, Men’s Champ Sean Fowler, and Master’s Champ Steve Moore.
