Three surf contests in one?! Seems crazy, I know. But not impossible, as demonstrated by Paul West and The Florida Surfing Association this past weekend at the pier. The TRIFECTA surf contest combined three major events (States, Great Atlantic and Surfing the Blues) in to one mega-event for surfers to get the opportunity to claim not just one, but in many cases, three separate titles.
Surfers lucked out, as the swell from the week before was still going strong bringing waist-to-rib high waves to the event.
Stand outs include Maddie Gregory, who claimed the Micro-mini division in both the Great Atlantic and Surfing the Blues events. She didn’t stop there. Maddie snagged a 2nd place finish in States coming in after Lucas Delgado. The Cunningham family dominated as well. Merrick, Shealyn, Braidyn, Layney and Cierra all took Top 4 finishes. Jake McGuire was on as usual winning the Open Men’s division.
