VQS Catfish Series Photos And Video

The VQS Catfish Surf Series kicked off a two day event extravaganza by revved with a Pre-Party at Playero Surf Shop in beautiful Rincon, Puerto Rico the night before. We signed up a massive amount of competitor and when there was no more beer and pizza left it was time to close up shop and get ready for the mornings mayhem!

Day one greeted us with 4-5 ft fun surf, so sent the Juniors Division straight into the water to get things underway. With news of the swell fading we decided to finish as much of the older guys as we could, so we ran all the way through the semis with the Pro and Junior divisions. The Pro dudes had their work cut out for them with first round being a round of 96, one of the biggest VQS regional Pro-Am contests ever! The weather and waves were beautiful all day and before we could blink it was time to pack up and get ready for day two.

Day two brought us in to the younger divisions of the event and because they had to sit and watch the day before, they were frothing to get in the water. We sent the Girls out first at 8:00 am sharp and the final day was under way. The Squids, Girls, and Groms divisions offered talent from four different countries and people coming down from as far as New York to try and get to the champs! As the day rolled along, the kids were getting wild and the competitors were dropping like flies and just like that it was time to crown our Champions and hand out some loot! Check out all the highlights from the both days of action.
