Breaking news from the desk of Captain Obvious: Sunrise Surf Shop sponsors good surfers.
Last week, a crew from the shop’s current roster went to the Oakley Surf Shop Challenge Southeast Regional Qualifier in New Smyrna and brought back something like Sunrise’s 363rd title. It wasn’t easy, as strong performances by other talented Florida shop teams–like Aqua East Surf Shop’s estimable group–made it difficult for this year’s roster of Tristan Thompson, Evan Thompson, Cody Thompson and Adam Harrel. They squeaked into the final. And, of course, got it done, earning yet another trip to Nicaragua in search of Sunrise’s 495th (approximately) Oakley Surf Shop Challenge National Championship.
The folks at Surfer Mag put together a nice little highlight reel from the festivities in New Smyrna. Hit play to watch our local boys (from both Sunrise and Aqua East) shred some pretty darn contestable surf in Volusia County.
