Blair Conklin took the win at this year’s Santa Cruz event, a contest where he has excelled in recent years. In doing so he jumped up into a strong first place in the standings on this year’s tour. He was followed by the talented John Weber in 2nd, Perry Pruitt in 3rd and Sam Stinnett in 4th.
For the first time in more than 25 years of competition history the Santa Cruz event was not held at 26th Ave this year. Contest organizer Ben Koscielniak decided to roll the dice on a new contest venue at 3rd Avenue. Despite the small swell most contest attendees approved of the change in venue and we expect to see it again in future years.
