This past weekend the Jellyfish Surf Series made it’s second stop of the year in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We were lucky enough to score super fun 4-6 ft. chunky wind swell. Over 120 competitors showed up around 7:00am to take advantage of the fun surf and the chance to qualify for the 2005/2006 VQS Championships, where Volcom will be handing over $75,000.00 in prize money!

The Kids were out of control the entire day. Shaving creamed groms were running wild from start to finish and even had the nerve to cover the Volcom van from bumper to bumper. I think every grom walked away with something for their efforts. Billy Hume, Mike Gleason, Jake Kirshenbaum and Ian Parnell all showed up and were each mobbed by a rat pack of groms. The first one to get them on the ground would get a deck pad from DaKine. I think Jake got worst of it, he got slammed by a 13 year old giant grom.

Speaking of groms! In the Groms division we had a couple new faces show up and a couple VQS vets. Taking top honors was our favorite little person from New York Mr. Balaram Stack. Balaram pulled a couple big moves in the final, to take home a huge Volcom backpack filled with tons of prizes. I’m sure the other groms were bummed to know they had lost out on winning the Volcom Jeep RC car. Balaram’s eyes lit up once he got a look at the giant jeep. Good Job to all the groms!!!

The girls were on fire! Kate Flemming won the finals after taking out a very talented pack of ladies. The girls went home with huge prize bags and another day of tanning oil and sunlight. Thanks for showing up and having fun!

The Juniors division was pretty darn tough. I wouldn’t have wanted to be in this final because I would have gotten spanked by a bunch of kids. Ricky Palluck took down the rest of the bro’s with a great display of surfing. Zach Kenny took a close second and was stoked to know that he had secured a spot in the VQS Champs. Good job to all of the Juniors competitors.

The Pro-Am divison was stacked in just about every heat. Lucas Rodgers was on a mission after a couple really good airs but came up short. Ian Parnell claimed the victory and $500 cash after a great display of big gouging turns and a couple mean tubes. Everyone was surfing good. After the final awards were given out Ian tossed all of his prizes to the groms and still walked away a richer man.
