We must have been good boys and girls, of late, because Mother Atlantic has been kind to East Coast surfers, upping our allowance in the form of one of the most active and exciting storm seasons in recent memory. And last weekend, she threw us a nice little party, as the two-day Void Pro/Am presented by Kona Brewing Co. kicked off in fun-size, highly contestable surf on the north side of the Jacksonville Beach pier.

What’s more? All of our friends came!

From the grom divisions to the our popularly offbeat Twin-fin challenge, the Pro Longboard, and the high-flying Red Bull Night Riders tow-at qualifier, the weekend’s heats were stacked with the best local and regional surf talent imaginable. And nowhere was the event’s appeal as one of the most hotly contested surf competition’s on the EC more apparent than in the Faver-Gray Men’s Pro and Small Business SEO Women’s Pro, where interlopers Michael Dunphy (New Smyrna-by-way-of-Virginia-Beach) and Zoe Benedetto (Stuart) took first place in their respective divisions, along with a cool $2K each.

Dunphy took home the loot after winning a men’s final that featured Flagler’s Ryan Huckabee and locals (and perennial finalists) Cody Thompson and Wayne Satterwhite, while the not-yet-of-legal-driving-age Benedetto outlasted locals Cierra Cunningham, Molly Kirk, and Piper Austin to hoist overhead her oversized check. Another VA Beach native, Parker Sawyer, won the The Boardroom Twin-Fin Challenge, earning himself a sweet little Void Vessel twin-keel. And the region’s best longboarders turned out en masse for the The Black Rose MFG./Blue Haven Pools & Spas Pro Longboard, where Daytona Beach’s Steven McLean outlogged Dylan Andrews as well as Flagler Beach boys Ryan Conklin and Saxon Wilson to earn a healthy $1,000.

On Saturday, busy boy Cody Thompson also took first place in the Red Bull Night Riders qualifier, earning a spot alongside Balaram Stack in the next Night Riders contest right here in Jax, as well as 500 big ones.

Big congrats to all the surfers who competed and a HUGE thank you to all our event sponsors, as well as the community that came out to offer support and take-in the festivities. An enthusiastic success, all around!
