Dan Worley’s Flagler Surf Series #4 was a total success this past weekend, much thanks to the nice swell that came in on Sunday and blue skies warming up shivering goose-pimpled skin.
From the outside it looked like a giant family reunion at the beach with folks just hanging out having a laugh with each other. However underneath the sponsor tents in the sand there were serious matters taking place. One happened to be on the subject of buried treasure. Apparently a scurvy pirate hid the booty under a cloak of darkness and lost his map, causing the search and seizure to take place over the course of a day and night. The Quote of the day became ” I SWEAR THE TREASURE IS RIGHT HERE IN THIS GENERAL LOCATION.” However, diligent kiddos didn’t stop digging until they found a passage to china or the gold, which happened to be a donated bag of Sunbum goodies.
The other matter under deep consternation was the Pro Am division stacked with awesome local talent and a purse that might cause a mutiny. The winner Dustin Richardson, who actually came to the contest as an alternate, not only won every heat to claim the $625.00 prize and future automatic entry status but also claimed the $100.00 Hot Wave award sponsored Ocean City Surf Company.
Winner Dustin Richardson
But it’s through hard work of volunteers and judges that help make this event a success filled with awesome surfing! I am looking forward to many more Surf Series and watching the town embrace this killer sport.
