Event #7 of the 2006 Matix/Sun Diego Pro/Am Surf Series was held April 29th-30th at South Jetty, Oceanside Harbor, Ca. A combo swell whipped up some really fun, glassy 2-4ft. peaks all weekend. A lot of really good surfers who were in town for the Lowers QS entered which made event #7 even better than usual.
A really tight battle for the Matix/Sun Diego Pro/Am tour title got even tighter after event #7. Ratings leader, Teddy Navarro was injured and couldn’t surf in this contest. Number two rated Michel Flores who finished 2nd in event #7 closed the gap between number one and two. It’s all going to come down to the last event of the season coming up Memorial Day weekend in Ocean Beach Pier in San Diego! Log onto www.matixclothing.com or www.sundiego.com for more contest info.
