The unsOund Surf "Right Coast Cup" presented by Quiksiler went down last week, and for the second year in a row the mid Atlantic lit up with a hearty hurricane swell. Though the days leading up to the contest were riddled with small surf and less than ideal weather, on September 6th everything came together resulting in great weather and pumping surf. The contest was on.
As competitors arrived on site, they were psyching at the chance to surf glassy, head high waves with with a near empty line up. As news began to circulate that the comp was on, spectators eagerly joined the scene to witness more barrels, airs, and hacks than they knew what to do with. Stand outs like Gabe kling, Killian Garland, Blake Jones, and local boy Balaram Stack showed went nuts as each heat unfolded. Heat after heat, the performance level was continuously upped. After 8 hours of near perfect conditions, the winds began to put a texture on the Atlantic and the competitors agreed to finish up the contest the following morning, which was forcasting to be another solid day.
