Volcom Starfish Series Results From Newps

vOLCOM STONES STARFISH SURF SERIES
November 2, 2002
Newport Beach 58th St.

vOLCOM STONE’S STARFISH was held on Saturday, November 2, 2002. We were blessed with sunny but windy conditions. The waves were in the 1 to 3 foot range with the better peaks coming in the morning. Peaks were only coming in on the north side of the 56th ST.jetty. We had,as usual, a full contest and stoked spectators on the beach. The first heat of the day went out at 7:00AM and the mens final in the afternoon.

The grom division was packed with talent as always. Daniel Shea beat Ford Archbold to win his first STARFISH contest of the season and a new K2 snowboard. Daniel had a very strong third wave to out score the restof the finalist. The other finalist included Bones, Matt Mohagen, Bryan Doheny, and a grom with a beard.

The juniors division was a hard fought battle of two turn waves. Erica Hosseini from newport smoked the male competitors all day but placed 5th during the final. It was a very close final with Max McIlwee taking the becker complete skateboard home and leaving Chase Newsome a half point short.

The conditions for the mens final went down the drain taking the tide and the waves with it. Geoff Moysa returned to the STARFISH to claim the win and the $150 in cash. Brandon Guilmette and Geoff Moysa both had strong first waves but Moysa had a strong second with two vertical turns. Dave Post tried the peak up the beach but it wasn’t working as well as it did for him during his first place finish in the quarters. Shawn Ward, Troy Tecklenberg, and Jorge Lopez rounded out the field.

The next STARFISH contest is on the 7th of December in Newport beach.This last contest is the most important one of the series because it is a double points rated event. The top 5 in each division will qualify tocompete in the VQS* Championship in May.
