Results From The Final Goldfish Event Of The Season

The final Goldfish event of the season was held at Pismo Pier on Feb 22nd, 2003. The surf was 3-4 ft. with occasional bigger sets, the wind came on mid day but died and created for some highly contested finals to end the season. Over 86 kids showed up to compete for cash and prizes.

In the Grom division Carpinteria hellion Cory Arrambedie showed up to the dismay of all the division. If you have ever seen Cory surf you would know why..Cory stands about 4 feet tall but his surfing is as polished as a season veteran. Needless to say he walked away with the win, with Colin Anderson, Taylor Wood, John Webber, Lorin Anderson, and Walter Deyerle, rounding out the final. John Webber ended up winning the overall points race and the goldfish Grom season title.

Juniors are pissed and they never want to lose and today was no different. Carpenteria sensation Bummy Koepenick winning his fourth Goldfish event, ending year with a perfect season. Steve Roese, TJ Mortimer, David Webber, Jon Grubbs, and Tom Mowry, rounded out the final. Bummy won the juniors overall points, and the Goldfish Junior season title.

In the Pro-Am the season points race came down to the final and it gets interesting when you throw in a wild card like Henry Mills. In a final the judges said was the best final they have ever judged. Nate Tyler, Henry Mills, Dustin Ray, Blake Howard, and Chris Enns, battled it out with Henry taking the win with Nate coming in a close second. following in a really close third was Dustin Ray. Nate tyler ended the season with a goldfish title.
