October 19, 2013 was a fun day in Atlantic City, NJ For the First East coast Event of the 2013/2014 Surfing America Prime Season. And the Surf was really good all week, Sophie started off strong winning her first heat of girls u16. and Placing 2nd and moving on in u18. The semis were really intense, Sophie surfed valiantly but got edged out of the u16 in the last seconds, giving her an equal 5th place result and valuable points. The u18 semi was a different story firmly holding on to second and battling to maintain that position. Sophie made it to the u18 girls final and held in there taking 4th place respectively. She had a great event and really turned some heads dropping big scores.
There is a great article on the event at Eastern Surf Magazine, Thanks to Surfing America for the killer photo!
