Local boy Justin Quintal is, by many measures, the best longboarder in the world, winning more Duct Tape Invitational contests (the world’s premier logging contest) than any other living human. So when J. Quinny decided to host his own invitational competition in August, the prevailing wisdom amongst the East Coast’s best longboarders seemed to be: If Quintal calls, you go! 

The video below, put together by local lensman Luke Kothera, features the best longboarders from the East Coast competing in Quintal’s inaugural Loggerhead Classic at the Jacksonville Beach Pier, then celebrating the victories of Jax-by-way-of-SoFla’s Pat Nichols and St. Augustine’s Jazmine Dean at Atlantic Beach’s Hotel Palms. Check it out and read more about the contest over at SURFER Magazine.
