ESA All-Stars Coach, Jason Motes says: Maddie is one of my ESA All-Stars! Just an incredible young lady. She rips on a shortboard and she’s killing it in the longboard divisions as well. I’ve often called her Maddie Quintal for her longboard dominance. She recently won the pro longboard division of the Eco Pro Surf Series and, yes, it was against the boys!

ESA All-Stars Coach, Jason Motes, says: Carl is in a group of about five kids along the East Coast that I see taking the big jump to the WQS in the years to come; huge claim, but Carl has earned it! He is on the ESA All-Star team. His surfing is smooth, but powerful. And his ability to read a wave is incredible. He’s got all the air moves down pat as well. Carl is on his way to very big things and I’m just stoked to be there to watch it happen!
