The 2nd stop on the 2000 Volcom Seacow Surf Series took place on July 9th in St. Augustine, the oldest City in the US. I arrived at the Beach early to find a line of cars waiting patiently for who knows how long for the gates to open to Anastasia Park. There was a small wind swell that luckily brought us 2-3 foot fun incoming tide surf for almost the entire event. We had a completely full event and extended the pro-am event by adding a few extra heats, while the grom and junior grom divisions were full in the first few minutes of sign in. This set us up for a very long day.
In the grom division it was young Florida grom, 14 year old Volcom rider Cheyne Pickney taking top honors with Bradley Margol following in a close second. Cheyne has been on top in the first two Florida Seacow events. The Junior 15-17 division was won by Richard Barrile who was throwing a few big meneuvers and Adam McGill not far behind in second.. Definately the heat of the day went to the Pro-am final. Committed Volcom backer Joe Terry, Jody Davis, Gabe Kling, and Volcom's Jeremy Creter battled it out in the 2-3 foot windy shorebreak conditions. Feeling the tricky conditions , Joe Terry ended up in 4th with Jody Davis edging him out with a close 3rd. Battling it out for top honors was Gabe Kling and Jeremy Creter, showing why they are two of the most talented surfers in Fl, they pulled ahead of each a few times leaving Volcom's Jeremy Creter on top, who walked away with a snowboard etc. with Gabe Kling in a close second.
This is the second stop out of five on the Florida leg of the Volcom Crustacious Tour. The supporters have been unreal, the parents interest in our free events, the sponsors and especially the surfers and that's what it's all about. Our other supporting companies, Dragon Optics, K-Grip , Flexdex( K-Skate), and Globe Shoes. All these companies kick in product because they love surfing. I greatly appreciate your support and so do the kids. I also want to thank Dave Hart for his outstanding beach marshall and bullhorn performance throughout the long day in the sun.
