Classic Enough

 This year The Rincon Classic was really exciting and I was stoked to have surfed in it. The waves were pretty good on Saturday with clean green Queen walls. The next day saw a bit bigger surf and had more bump on the face. I saw a ton of divisions and every final was very fun to watch. The Mens was more stacked then ever, The Masters were ripping, and the Women were charging. One final that sticks out was the Longboard Final, Oliver Parker and Cole Robbins were going head to head with Cole focusing on more progressive surfing and classic doggie tricks, and Oliver switching foot and surfing the Queen with classic finesse. I am personally stoked with my finish of 3rd place. The Pro Final was really stacked and all the surfers were giving it their all. The southwest wind created a bump making it difficult to get speed or do real maneuvers. In the end Conner Coffin was the champ after putting his board on rail and surfing the point waves with great style. Congrats to Conner, Mike Mccabe, and Peter Mussio for all surfing an excellent event. Congrats to Mens Champ Simon Murdoch!! Congrats Demi on her Ninth Rincon Classic victory!!
