RIP MY SHRED STICK: GRAND HAVEN
Stop number 22 of the RMSS tour landed us in the beautiful town of Grand Haven, Michigan. On hand to meet us at the beach were 70 of the town’s best young wave riders. The kids were so fired up to surf with Pat O’Connell, Beau Foster and the rest of the Hurley crew that a 48 degree water temperature and flat conditions did nothing to slow them down. We saw some great rides from all the competitors as the final bonus round saw some front flips, backflips, board transfers, summersaults and headstands — it was quite the show. Taking home the big win and new GoPro camera, Phantom Create boardshorts, Spy sunglasses, Stance socks, Futures fins, Mophie iPhone case and other goodies was Justin Wiggens, who threw down a breakdance spinning headstand right into the sand. Congrats to everyone on a job well done and thanks to the local community for all the wonderful support. Can’t wait to see you next year!
