Sophie Won the 2012 5th Annual Matt Rast Gray Memorial contest in Atlantic Beach, FL. She surfed well in the Queesn’s 16 & under Division, Also she skated in the skate contest in the AB Bowl and placed 2nd, just a fun overall weekend!
Sophie experienced her first NSSA East Coast Championships contest last week in sloppy 2-4′ conditions in New Smyrna Beach, With a staked heat in Round 1, She surfed very strong with high scoring snappy turns earning her 2nd Place and moved her to the Semi-Final or reporcharge round. With the waves not cooperating and breaking pretty funky she needed a 2 to advance to the final and just did not get it.
Sophie finished the NSSA season in 3rd place in her district and 8th over all at East coast championships, So Top 10 in her first season is a great accomplishment in our books!
Sophie took 4th place out of a field of 16 girls at the Ron Jon Easter Surf Fest this year, She won 2 heats along the way and surfed really well! It was also fin to hang out with her friends from stewart Avery and Skyler, and to meet fellow Xtrak and Arnette team rider Rachel Prestie
