Oakley Froggy Surf 2008

Oakley Surf 102

Oakley Froggy Surf reaches out to all the local Santa Cruz surfers, regardless of age or ability. Three divisions for the kids, and an open women’s division let all the youngsters get a chance to shred the legendary right-hander. The invite Pro Am included all the top Santa Cruz pros and a long and distinguished alternate list.

The usual suspects were getting busy as the combination swell provided waves off the point and on the mid peak. Jason “Ratboy” Collins was in top form, along with Bud Frietas, Anthony Ruffo, and Ashton Medley. The Lane continued to churn out waves all afternoon and the tide began to drop off for the finals.

In the Mini Grom final it was all Max Nunes. The boys saw Nic Supergrom Hernandez graduate to the boys division, but the result remained the same. The Juniors victory wend to East Side Oakley rider Ashton Medley. Ashton was doing double duty in the finals, but came up short as he ran Ratboy, THE surfer of the event. Ratboy made easy work of the finals snatching two solid waves and putting the entire rest of the field in a combination situation, taking home the $2,000 cash and Oakley split thumps. The East vs. West side Airshow shootout saw the West regain its title.
