Butterfish Series Event Number One Results From Mandalay In Oxnard.

Volcom VQS
Butterfish Series Event #1
Mandalay, Surf 2′-4′
Volcom Butterfish surf series kicked off of onSaturday September 14th with foggy skies and 2-4 foot surf at Mandalay Beach in Oxnard. With 72 amped competitors duking it out for cash and prizes this was a great event.
The largest division of the day was the Grom division and they killed it. No division is more stoked than the Groms. In the Final it was a one grom show with Corey Arrambide going vert in the small peaks. Kellen Ellison and Timmy Pfannestial made their presence felt but couldn’t match the quickness of Cory.
The Juniors Division winner earned a Santa Cruz snowboard for the win so all the finalists were determined to get the prize and the early lead for the VQS invite. The final came down to two Juniors who are totally different. Frank Tesoro and Nick Agropolis battled it out with Nick’s last wave of an 8 pushing him into first.
The Pro-Am Division had a seriously stacked field with Sean Hayes, Blake Howard, Yves Bright, Nate Tyler, Ian O’Neill and Colin Dodgson. The event was the first Pro-Am final for Colin Dodgson and he did himself proud with a 2nd place finish and $50 cash. This was a tight final going back and fourth but in the end Yves Bright took the win and the $200 cash and prizes.
