The Pt. Mugu Surf Contest Presented by Quiksilver took place this past weekend on the Naval Base in Ventura County for it's 3rd consecutive year. With perfect surf and sun the event saw an estimated 9,000 people at the two-day event to support the military and watch the surfing. Once again, this year’s event filled up quickly with 180 entrants competing for the prestigious trophies, trophies made from old bullets and grenade cases. In addition to the unique trophies all of the finalists received a ton of prizes and in each competitor’s gift bag they received authentic Dog Tags.

The highlight of this year’s event was no doubt the level of talent in the finals of the military division and spectators and competitors were treated to pumping surf in the 4-6 foot range and sets as big as 10 feet on the face. Quiksilver's own team rider and Ventura local Dane Reynolds made an appearance on Saturday. Dane jumped in the water to surf for a one hour demo with the Quiksilver Union Accounts who were invited out to the event and sample the surf that Pt. Mugu is known to produce. Dane was constantly in the tube or launching huge rotated aerials that had the crowd cheering. When Dane hit the beach, he signed multiple autographs and took photos with his fans, which included some of the military.

It was an absolute honor for Quiksilver once again to be involved with the event and to have the opportunity to give back to the military who does so much for us on a daily basis. Check the results below…
