Channel Islands Ices Another Month On Top, As Quiksilver Moves In For The Kill

June 2013 Surf Exposure-Meter Ad Whores
Wilson And Smith Team Up To Retain Ad-Meter Glory
Still earning themselves some serious ad-space, Julian Wilson and Jordy Smith tag-team the top two for the third month running. John John Florence and his plethora of sponsors— namely, Hurley— have made moves this month, passing on last month's fifth place finish in favor of third. Anthony Walsh graciously steps back into fourth, while fifth is occupied by Bruce Irons, with a little help from Fox. Parkinson breaks away from a three-way tie to stand solo in sixth, though Dion Agius and Evan Geiselman are still duking it out for seventh. Zeke Lau brushes off about 21 seats to take ninth, with Dakine and Arnette helping pave the way. Dillon Perillo and Matt Wilkinson are both balanced on the edge of ad-central, tied for tenth.
June 2013 Surf Exposure-Meter Edit Wars
Florence Continues His Edit Meter Domination
New month, new meter, same victor; John John maintains his edit meter title, while Bruce Irons and Craig Anderson land in second and third, respectively. Anderson backs up his nine-spot progression with a killer TransWorld Surf cover, not to mention an epic amount of feature worthy surfing throughout the same magazine. Dylan Graves gets bumped from second to fourth, pushing Dusty Payne back into fifth. Gabriel Medina gets off the borderline, nabbing sixth as Nate Tyler and Shane Dorian stand tall in seventh and eighth, respectively. Mitch Coleborn loses his grip on fifth and is shoved back into ninth, just one solid shot ahead of Jack Freestone.
June 2013 Surf Exposure-Meter Leaders
Here we are, ladies and gents! Sweet, sweet, summer time, and a round of May mags that did not disappoint. John John bags yet another win, with Bruce Irons still playing second fiddle. Craig Anderson makes a big move, swapping out last month's 10th place for a much more fitting third. Dylan Graves relinquishes his bronze to step reluctantly back into fourth, just one turn ahead of Jordy Smith in fifth. Julian Wilson drops back a few steps, taking sixth while Gabriel Medina backs him up with a seven-spot upgrade to match his seventh place position. Evan Geiselman steps off of the side-lines and into the game, sitting pretty in eighth as Zeke Lau and Anthony Walsh round out the overall meter with 9th and 10th, respectively. Mover of the month goes to Dane Reynolds, who aired over 12 spots to land in 11th— just on the verge of that elite top ten. Mirroring their overall ranks, Florence, Irons, Anderson, and Graves take first through fourth for this round of feature fame. Julian Wilson makes up for his lapse on the overall meter by ace-ing the Ad victory, with John John falling back into third, taking a bronze while Jordy Smith snags silver. On the photog front, Carey final tumbles from the top, as Jimmicane steals the spotlight. Carey sits back into second, with Wilson holds tight to third.
See you next month.
