T&C Wins The Neff East VS. West Surf Shop Challenge

Town And Country Wins The Neff East VS. West Surf Shop Challenge
After two weeks of East vs. West smack talk between the ten participating surf shops and their loyal fans, we have a winner! At the end of the five heated rounds, the lone rep from Hawaii, Town And Country Surfboards, will walk away from the Neff East vs. West Surf Shop Showdown with a cool $3,000 cash money and $2,000 worth of Neff gear plus bragging rights that spread from New Jersey to NorCal to Ala Moana Bowls. Congrats to Kekoa Bacalso and the team at Town And Country!

While there were some great videos, we felt that T&C put the most thought and creativity into their video and it was great to see South Shore of Oahu spots that you normally don’t see in video clips. Including a former Model Search winner, Erika Smith, didn’t hurt either. As far as Kekoa’s acting skills, while he ain’t going to win an Oscar, for a surfer he did pretty well.
