Jay Christenson Takes First in Volcom Crusty Tour at Manhattan Beach

Click here to watch some video from the event...

The weekend started with an early am drive to El Porto in Manhattan Beach for the "Seaslug" division of the Volcom Crusty Tour. Jay took down all 48 surfers in his division resulting his first BIG WIN in the Volcom series as well as a monster haul of swag that included a sweet bike, shoes, watch, fins, and more. The win also locked up Jay's spot in the National Finals for the series. Sunday found Jay at Oceanside for the 4th event of the WSA series where Jay surfed out of his mind from the first horn, dropping a 7.5 on his first wave and backing it up with a 10 to secure his highest heat total to date- a 17.5. Jay finished in 2nd in U14, and killed the bigger boys, taking a 3rd from the U16 crew. Great weekend of surfing for Jay!

However, he proved that is not the only board he can properly shred on because he recently won the 16 and Under division at the Rusty Boardhouse "Any-Board Challenge," where he surfed five different random boards over the course of nine heats.
