O’Neill x Sun Diego Am Slam Stop #2


O’Neill x Sun Diego Am Slam Stop #2

Competitors and spectators didn’t expect much in the way of waves for Stop #2 of the four-part Sun Diego Am Slam Surf Series presented by O’Neill, as the surf forecast looked pretty bleak for Mission Beach. However, a 1-3ft windswell arrived just in time to give competitors enough to get busy on. By the time the finals rolled around, it was shoulder-high and a bit beyond simply “contestable.”

HIGHLIGHTS: Levi Slawson advanced to both the Men’s and Boys finals with impressive footwork, while the small-framed Roberto Rodrigues threw down some of the best maneuvers of the event. And HB local Jack Boyes ripped the crud out of the meager waves to win $800. Other standouts included Sun Diego teamriders Brock Crouch and Caleb Crozier, who won the aforementioned Men’s and Boys divisions, respectively, and Sidney Tisdell, who dominated the Women’s division.

OUTSTANDING PERFORMERS: Krystian Kymerson actually came into this event as the last alternate, and ended up winning every heat he surfed in except one. The Brazilian’s backhand verts and forehand blow-tails earned him the top prize, $1600, in the marquee Pro division.
