Barca Turns Heads in Maldives Dustin Barca finished equal third at the SriLankan Airlines Pro, a 5 Star Prime Rated World Qualifying Series in the Maldives. Dustin was in true form throughout the event at Pasta Point, and on the final day of super hot weather and perfect conditions, eliminated current WQS leader Jordy Smith in a man on man quarterfinal with aerials and big carving turns. Dustin surfed very loose and explosive through the whole event and hopes to take the momentum to the next event stop in South Africa. Barca earned $3,500 and 1875 points, which he will add to his total points for 2008 WCT “dream tour” qualification.

Kauai based Dustin Barca signed with Oakley in 2003 and has progressed from an aggressive junior who turned heads on the North Shore to a consistent force to be reckoned with on the WQS.
