This past week the ASP 6-star Prime Srilankan Airlines Pro took place in the Maldives. We were psyched to see one of our guys, Pat Gudauskas hammering through the heats and charging to the finals. In the final he was up against Aussie Pro Owen Wright. It was a hard fought battle with some huge scores being posted, but in the end, Owen took the title and Pat found himself in second. We’re stoked to see Pat surfing so well at this event. He won 6 of his heats and defeated some great competition on his way to 2nd. Thanks to this amazing effort from Pat, he’s now jumped up in the points standings to number 7. This inches him ever closer to making the WCT field for 2010.
The ASP contest in the Maldives and Pat’s awesome showing is just getting us even more psyched for when the tour comes to Huntington Beach in July for the U.S. Open. Since the contest is held at the pier right across from our shop, we’ve got all kinds of fun stuff planned. If you’re going to be out our way for the comp, you should definitely swing by and check out the happenings in the store.
