Jacobellis Gets Sixth Gold at FIS World Cup

Monday, February 4th, 2019

66008_10151189544383323_1132051294_nLindsey Jacobellis didn’t 6-peat in the individual races but got 5th overall and just missed finals by fractions of a second. She did, however, make history by winning gold, and her 6th gold medal, in the first ever mixed heat championships. Partnering with Team USA’s Mick Dierdorff, LJ came from behind early and dominated her race landing her in first and winning the gold.

We are so excited for Lindsey and her sixth gold medal!

Representing for TEAM USA at the ISA World Surfing Games, she retained her title and won gold in the individual competition. Team USA wound up getting a bronze medal because of Tia’s performance and they also got gold in the Aloha Cup team challenge. Tia surfed amazingly well all week in Jaco dominating most of her heats with huge carves, big hacks and a couple of super stylist laybacks.

Congrats Tia on your 2016 title win!

Prepping to enter the big leagues and hopefully qualify for the world tour, Tia’s swan song has been a sweet one with wins all over the place.

For a great pictorial recap of the contest please go HERE. To celebrate, Tia will be throwing out the first pitch at the San Diego Padres games on July 17th.

Congrats Tia.

Tia Blanco Takes Home GOLD!!!

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

picture-11Tia Blanco did it! Dominating the surf all week in Nicaragua, Tia has brought home the gold medal in the ISA World Surfing Games. Tia won every heat she entered (except one she got second because her board snapped) and showed everyone what a dominant performance looked like. The only member of Team USA to make the final and not have to surf in any repercharge heats, Tia surfed with power and style.

We are so proud of Tia and all she is accomplishing this year. Next stop for Tia is the Los Cabos Pro where she will hopefully get more points toward qualifying for the World Tour.
