Today marks the end of our Lake Atlantic Invitational Surf Competition. This event was beyond our wildest dreams, and we cannot thank you enough for having a hand in making this competition happen. With the help of your donations, we were able to hire essential personnel, custom order amazing trophies, make some rad t-shirts, and have an amazing time on the beach. The competition featured about 20 surfers with over 50 spectators on the beach. We had local media come out from Good Morning Gloucester, the Boston Globe and even had professional drone footage captured. Keep your eye out for these media outlets to post competition coverage!
Local high-schoolers Colby Kelly and Rhodes Cole placed first and second in the competition. John Lane from Bowdoin College traveled down to Gloucester and captured third place. And our very own President, Peter Roy, advanced to the final heat and placed fourth!
We are waiting for some awesome, high-quality pictures to be uploaded in the next few days. In the meantime, check out our trophies and top finishers!
