Spy Cam

Doug (Vans posse) sent over these pics yesterday from the event. Too good. Scotty (our surf TM) and Joel Tudor both hopped onto a little tiny scooter.


Omar was judging Saturday’s best trick contest.

Best story of the weekend: Two 14-year-old girls ran up to Zach (twenty-something) and crammed a note into his hand then ran away laughing. It was their phone numbers on some Coastal Edge cash!

Friday Wrap Up

Yeah, duh. Its Saturday so I gotta hurry & see what else is going on. I had to share with you some highlights from yesterday before I run out the door to the beach screaming. Vans’ Badders & Rambo were with team rider Rob Lorifice feeding swarms of seagulls out of their hotel window. Badders fed one out of his mouth. There was for sure a hula hoop contest going all day. Connie’s surfboard has her face airbrushed on it with a princess crown sticker. She’s funny:) We watched Good Old War play. Good old band. Surfy, surfy. Skatie, skate & bmxcellent. Shazaaam!

Djs & Bikes & Dudes & Girls & Little Kids


There is definitely not one certain kind of person at this event. The crowd is amazingly diverse. On one hand you have 90 year-old stylish golf grandpa coming down to see what the fuss is about. Then you have professional surfers, high schoolers, families on vacation…its all over the place. Most importantly, Virginia has WaWa. P1000069

The 1st BMX/Skate Demo this afternoon was pretty cool. Nice Ramp. Sun. People flipping around all over the place. Those guys know how to please a crowd.


At the same time, I got to watch my first longboard competition. There were pros. There were piles of little, little kids cheering on their friends. I could get used to this. I will run on the platform ‘surf contest everyday’ in the next student council election.
