Since the end of March, Corey been in 5 contests. The first two, DNA Jr. Pro and Surfing America Prime, didn't go as planned and he didn't make it to the finals. However, in NSSA East Coast Championships, Corey got my mind straight and he went for broke. Corey won the Explorer Jrs., placed 3rd in Open Men, and 4th in Open Jrs. The following weekend, he traveled to St. Augustine for ESA's Southeast Regionals where he won Jr. Men. Corey also won Ron Jon Easter Fest's Jr Pro division at Cocoa Beach Pier.

Nice work Corey. YEW!
This past weekend the Rusty Boardhouse Team Challenge went down in fun, shoulder high surf on the North side of Scripps Pier. There was a great turn out of local talent that made for a really exciting and close event. The contest had a unique structure... four man teams where chosen at random in the morning, consisting of two groms and two adults. The event was tag team style and points were tallied for a winning team. At the end of the day the winning team was The Charlie Sheens, consisting of Jacob Szekely, Bryan Guter, Miles Toner, Jay Christenson. Congrats, each team member won a shaped blank from Rusty Surfboards...
