Blanco Gets 2nd at WQS Shoe City Pro

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!

Blanco Gets Equal Third in NSSA Nationals

p1307734630-11Tia Blanco surfed dominant heats in NSSA Nationals this last week and made it all the way to semi’s. Unfortunately her heat didn’t serve up many contestable waves and she lost by a margin in a woman on woman heat with last year’s champ. This is Tia’s last NSSA event and rounds out an incredible junior career. With all the amazing finishes Tia has had in the 2015 season, she is now able to focus on her goal of qualifying for the World Tour.

Awesome job Tia. We are so proud of your accomplishments.
