Quiksilver Riders Make Podium In HB!

The Vans Pier Classic WQS 2* and Ezekiel Grade 2 Pro JR saw decent swell throughout the event. Big Wave Legend Peter Mel found himself taking down highly touted grommets like Evan Geiselman enroute to his 3rd place finish. CristobaL de Col made the trek up from Peru only to be bested  in the WQS semi-falling to to the “Wrath of Mel.” Tyler Newton showed fine form from start to finish and took home 4th place in the Ezekiel Jr final. Tyler utilizing solid rail work, big fins free tail wafts and his go to manuever, the frontside air reverse was a standout in a field of stacked Jrs.
