Thursday, January 14th, 2016

photoTia fought hard battles this week at the WQS Shoe City Pro to get a second place finish in the final against a stacked heat. Huntington Beach was pumping all week providing good contestable conditions. Tia won all her heats leading up to the semi’s, where she got second. Clearly the most active in the final heat, Tia had huge wave count but just missed the top spot by a little over a point.

The Shoe City is the first WQS contest of the year for the WSL.

Next stop for Tia is the Bahamas where she will be shooting for Surfing Magazine. Congrats Tia. You rocked it!

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

10661982_600482893407027_2424620456477763223_oRPRT has expanded its surf roster to include super grom Sebastian “Bash” Mendes to the family. 13 years old hailing from Ventura County, Bash is a north county ripper who has been surfing since he was 6. With a dad who works for the airlines, Sebastian is able to travel a lot more than most 13 year olds to contests and for filming trips. With a house in San Clemente as well, Bash is able to capitalize on Lowers when it is pumping.

Look for a lot more of Bash in the coming years surfing in NSSA, Surfing America Prime and US Surf Team heats.

Stoked to have you on board Bash!!!
