We love a good competition over here at The Admiral's Daughters, and when it involves the beach, sunshine & surf, wellllll, we love that even more! What a wonderful weekend sponsoring the Void Pro/Am and watching these rippers get after it in the water. So much awesome local talent here in Jacksonville! See what Void had to say in their recap below.
"What a weekend! After a slower than usual summer pushed us to use the contest’s backup dates, the Atlantic came alive and delivered two days of fun surf for the more than 200 competitors who signed up for our annual community surfing event, the Void Pro/Am Presented by Kona Brewing Co.
Saturday’s semi-clean lines morphed into textured-yet-punchy-and-rippable conditions for Sunday Funday (AKA Finals Day). With all the great vendors, sponsors, and spectators who came to chill with us, the energy on the beach nearly matched the pulses in the ocean.
Of course, there was no shortage of incredible surfing action.
Tristan Thompson–twin fin novice no longer–emerged from a crowded field of local rippers who took the Twin Fin Challenge, earning bragging rights and a pristine 5’6 Void twinny. Fresh off the plane from California, Flagler Beach’s Saxon Wilson styled his way to victory in the Pro Longboard. Meanwhile, Kayla Durden showed precisely why Void readers named her the #1 Surfer in the 904 this year, taking 1st in the Women’s Pro. And Cody Thompson was crowned king of the Jacksonville Beach Surfing Pier, as he outlasted the region’s best surfers in the Men’s Pro–earning a cool $1250 (and a champagne shower) in the process.
Of course, BIG THANK YOUs are in order, especially to our presenting partner Kona Brewing Company , SURFER the Bar and ALL of our sponsors for an absolutely unforgettable weekend. And thanks to everyone who came out to help spread positivity all weekend long. We look forward to seeing you all next year."
