Kauai super grom Kyle Galtes just placed 2nd at the Rip Curl Grom Search in Huntington Beach. He was edged out by Taylor Thorne in the final but this is still a solid result for Kyle. Look for more big results from Kyle at Nationals and throughout the rest of the year.

Bass Makes Round of 24


Bass made the Round of 24 at the Sri Lanken Pro and walked away with over 1500 pts. This has shot him up in the rankings from 92nd to 58th. He now has a solid shot and getting seeded into the US Open and maybe even qualifying for the CT this year. We don't want to jinx him though. Good job Bass.

SeaBass gears up for 'QS


Bass just came by the factory to pick up some new boards before he heads off to the Maldives for the SriLankan Airlines Pro. It is a 6 Star Prime so if Bass gets a good result he will be on track to get seeded into the US Open. His results at Trestles has really boosted him into the mix and allowed him to pursue the high rated contests. Here are some photos of Bass with his new boards:
